A Girl's Gotta do, What a Girl's gotta do!

As many of you know my husband has been on the down and out list for the past week or so. This has forced me to take on things I normally would not do, but a girl's gotta do what a girls gotta do. This past Friday, my sister and I took on the challenge of putting up the crown molding in the front part of our new "old" home.  This meant measuring, mitering and using the chop saw. 
Can I just SAY...........SUCCESS!

We used corner blocks so we would not have to miter all the corners.  I think the corner blocks added a little something, something to the molding.

Do you see that corner of the door facing?......
Yes, we mitered those....yippee!!!!!

I think it turned out fabulous!!!!!

More to come.......keep watching!




  1. Great job, girls! Mike Holmes would be proud! I used to do things like this, my guys are not handy at all, so I love it when I run across girls who know how to get it done! Love the accent blocks you used and it does add that extra bling!
    Hugs- Tete
