If you are looking for an easy and inexpensive way to add more visual interest to a space, then crown molding is the way to go. All you need are a few basic tools and some basic carpentry skills, and you can easily install crown molding quickly and upgrade your space.
A fast crown molding installation is possible by using wood glue to hold the pieces in place and then nailing them in or providing more security with thinner nails or finish nails. When using glue for any fast crown molding installation, make sure it is material-specific glue, and it is made for the crown molding type you have chosen.
If you want to paint it, before you install crown molding, quickly prime it and paint it the color of your choice before you do so. Priming your crown molding first ensures the paint will adhere better and taking the time to do it before installation makes it easier on you. Apply the finish you have chosen to all sides, including the back, because this can help prevent any warping.
