crown molding


We have a 19' ceiling in the living room and the previous owners installed a horizontal shelving along the seam where the upper and lower sheetrock joins together to cover the seam. We remodeled recently and removed the shelving. What kind of wide molding can we install to cover up the seam ,covering approximately 12" of space, or what kind of multiple moldings stacked can we use? Thanks a million

Your dimension shows up on my computer as 12&quot, not sure what that is, but if it is a large space, you can use combinations of flat stock and trim. It is limited by imagination. but lumberyards and even big box carry a large variety of stock trim moldings, ranging from simple to baroque. A small space could be covered by a simple chair rail molding.

This happens quite a lot. Generally " means ( " ) .... double quotes or the inch mark.

crown molding


Depending on how bad/wide the seam is, you can use 2" chair rail. If you want to float the seam a little, you can use a combination of moldings and simply gloss the drywall in between.

I have 20' ceilings and I went with 7" crown with 5" baseboard turned upside down and protruding from the bottom of the crown, then 6 or 8 inches of gloss drywall and 2" rail. The whole things measures 16" or so. If I understand your situation, you seam is about halfway up the wall, so the size of what I have would be too much in your case. However, you may be able to do something similar and save on the molding. As I said before, however, you;ll have to float the drywall to gloss it, which would be, to some extent, contrary to covering it with molding.

Meriwether Lewis used to note "&c" (or maybe it was &ct) in his journals describing his voage, which is an old way of saying "etc".

This trim is on a 14 foot ceiling. Just a thought.
