Bathroom Remodel #8: A little trim

12-02-2015 06:52 PM by Dan Lyke | 20 comments »

Took me a couple of tries to get a mirror shape I liked: A few things I learned about cutting the oval (which took me 3 tries, although one of those was unrelated to the cutting): Cut from the front, not the back. I was concerned about the mirror coating peeling off when I broke the glass, but it turns out it came off just fine. Alas, it was too thick for my cutter to cut through.

The past couple of days I have prepped some oak and cut it into the parts I need to make the architrave moldings in the living room. As you can see it consists of four parts. One thin strip, one cove, and two ogees. Stacked one atop another they make a nice window top. The side moldings are fluted. Simple design, not difficult to make and a nice effect that will not need any other window dressing like curtains..The parts: from left to right. thin strip, large cove, narrow ogee, wide ogee..Cap...

My better half is out buying paint for our living room plus some other goodies. We have been in this house for a year now and although it was painted when we moved in we can not live with the color “which is in every room including the bathrooms”.
