I'm planning to have interior paint and crown molding. Which job
should I do first? Paint wall, let it try then put the crown molding
up or put crown molding before paint.
Wall with have a light brown color. Crown molding will be white.
Find studs and ceiling joists near the top corner using the biblical
method, seek and ye shall find, poke a nail through the sheetrock.
Mark ceiling and walls for the joists and studs with masking tape.
Put up crown molding nailing to the joists and studs. Since you are
painting, consider the mdf molding - slightly cheaper and cuts nicely.
Caulk all of the gaps between the ceiling/molding/walls with a
painter's caulk, not silicone. Cleans up easily with water.
Paint the ceiling.
Paint the molding.
Paint the wall.
Have a cold one, I prefer Hangar One.
