    Default Crown molding

    Looking to add some crown to what will be my man room.
    It will have the old feel of the house (1899 Victorian) but I want it to be manly also (I don't really consider Victorian manly per-say ).

    I want to do a beefy molding and thought about actually doubling it up with a 1x4 box. Basically we would take two 1x4s make an "L" shaped 1/2 box, put that in the corner. The put crown on both sides of it. I've seen this done in a local Colonial house and it had a great look.

    I need ideas / suggestions / comments / etc. What do you think?



    Here are a few shots of the room as it sits now. Sorry I didn't get all the way up to the ceiling. But there is a picture rail about 1 & 1/2 feet from the ceiling (12 foot ceilings). The room will be a dark brown with white trim.

    Looks great, but with the color of those walls, you need to turn in your man card!!

    good call, but down forget the beer fridge

    the crown looks like 2 piece, baseboard run around the top of the walls up to the ceiling first?

    Correct on the baseboard run.

    Beer fridge is an old 50's model pull handle General Electric I got for free and re-wired and repainted.

    I've got this man room covered.

    It was in an old office of a company I used to work for.
    It didn't work, so they gave it to me.
    I rewired it and re painted it and it runs like a top.
