Inspiration File – Molding

February 8, 2010

Thanks to the Saints for falling 1-point shy of me having a new bathroom. That is sarcasm people. It doesn’t translate as well online. I was sickened. I now know how real fans of sports must feel every time their team loses. Bye, bye dream bath. Here is some eye candy to ease the pain. 

There are so many cool things you can do with molding. And, it is uber cheap. Check out these uses for strips of wood. They make me weak in the knees.  


Layla of The Lettered Cottage takes her stock kitchen cabinets from bland to bold with a little molding and paint. Here is a close-up of how she did it.  

Layla also added molding to an outdated fireplace. Doesn’t it look fabulous?  



And how about this hallway? A little molding gives it such character.

Thrifty Decor Chick is the queen of molding. Look how she uses it to make plain walls look more expensive and to give her tub a spa-like surround.  



You can also use molding in untraditional ways to make a big impact. Look at these two ideas from Apartment Therapy.  




I am inspired. How about you?

    So sorry about your dream bath, Anne. Here’s a George Orwell quote for you to ponder . . . “Saints should always be judged guilty until they are proved innocent.” Not sure how this applies, but the pondering of it may momentarily take your mind off your loss. Love the molding ideas!

    Still sorry over Saints. I would love someday to fly you here and have budget for you to decorate with……super job on that fireplace, and kitchen cabinets, too. Was thinking about our hallway going to bath…that hall was awesome, too. Help me, help me, help me she cried.

    Last picture too busy for me. hugs,
