Some tips on installing your Easy Crown Molding

  • One kit will make 16 inside corners and 4 outside corners, however there are no corner pieces. The angled end of the straight piece will make your corner.
  • Use common household scissors to cut the Easy Crown Molding.
  • Always overlap the angled end OVER the square end
  • When overlapping the straight pieces, make sure the top edge is tight to the overlapped piece before pressing the molding to the ceiling. If this is not done the seams will be more visible.
  • The molding can be painted. We recommend first priming with plastic primer which comes in a spray can and can be found in most home centers. After the molding is primed you can paint with ordinary household paint.
