Moulding

May 8th, 2008

This past weekend we installed new moulding in the kitchen and bathroom to replace the cheap vinyl commercial-grade sticky moulding that the previous owners installed. We also painted everything bright white. Lot and lots of painting has been happening…

Before moulding:



And after:



We also started installing moulding in the pink bathroom, but haven’t quite finished. It needs to wrap around the built-ins and the walls need to be patched, sanded and then painted. More goddamn paint.

After:



The plug of doom got a mini makeover with electrical tape and an adapter and now we were able to bring in the fridge (finally) from the garage. It looks so weird! It also makes the kitchen feel tiny. I’m not sure what to do…we might need to get an older fridge to match the style of the cabinets and stove. Just as I thought we were getting somewhere with the kitchen, curses!

      Where did you get that moulding?

      The Home Depot.

      Its just plain 3 inch molding, we spent about $60 on all the supplies to do the kitchen and bathroom.

      But where did you get it? I went to Home Depot and they didn’t have anything remotely similar.

      Oh, I don’t know thats odd – I’m in California so I don’t know if that makes a difference.

      I got it in the molding section at the Depot – it was the prefinished white 3 inch cheap MDF squared off stuff. We got it in 12 foot sections.

      I don’t see it on their website…totally weird.

      Atlanta Supply has a huge inventory of heating/AC registers – – powder coated white with working louvers! and not so expensive. Painting registers with latex usually does not turn out so well, and it holds onto dirt.
