This past weekend Dave installed the crown moulding around the tops of our cabinets. This isn’t a super-tall design, we wanted something subtle, yet elegant.

Later this week and this weekend we will start the priming and painting of the rest of the cabinets. We have a paint sprayer to use for the doors, but will hand-paint the cabinet bases.

We also picked up our hardware for the cabinet doors and drawers. I can’t wait to see how awesome they look when installed.


The moulding is white because we chose a PVC composite.


I applaud Dave’s awesome angle cuts for these 45-degree-installed cabinets.


The PVC composite is mainly glued into place with Liquid Nails. It can be sanded and painted just like wood.


Yes, we have some sanding to do. No worries. This will look really nice once it’s painted.
