This time, I had an idea to use the molding to make little
I used the chop saw to miter the edges and used lots
of wood glue to secure them to another piece of wood on the back.
Primed them ...
I only had enough molding to make three...boo.
I would have loved to make a whole forest of them.
After I glued the largest one together, I realized two things.
One...the last two layers I used were plain molding and it didn't
look right with all the other decorative molding.
And two...the second to the last layer is not cut on the same angle as the others.
I don't know how that happened, but it did and I left the "uneven" cutting.
But for the "too plain" dilemma, I used ...
This nailhead trim I had on hand and applied it to that layer
for added dimension...
And this is how that one turned out...much better.
I decided to go monochromatic and paint white with a brown wash
to bring out all the detail
They are made to just lean on a shelf or mantel
Painted on the back...
This molding is all just so pretty to me...
On the smallest one, I didn't stagger the layers but instead cut them
even for a different look.
