How can I patch this trim piece that was under a soffit?


We removed the soffits that were around the kitchen and the fake beams are now missing the ends. Any clever ways to fix this that will look good?

Any molding that will cover the gap, stained before nailing into place.

Alternately, one that is thick enough, painted the wall color and nailed to the wall so that the beam looks like it is sitting in stirrup. Standard casing is 9/16" and at the other extreme brick mold is 5/4".

I like the stirrup idea, can't be more noticeable then a big hole is now. :-) It's a big gap, probably 1.5" though. The other side has a big chunk taken out that I plan on trying to cut and match but I doubt that's going to go well.

I thought about taking the crown off and raising the cabinet high with some pine to try and hide it.

That might work but I would not take the crown off. I would leave the crown and add behind it in image 1 above.

You don't have to do the same thing both places or on both sides of the room. As long as the work is well done and blends no one is ever going to pay any serious attention to it. Well, nobody but you.

Personally, if it was my house or a house I was working on, I would rebuild them. It may cost a bit more, but in the long run, you will be happier. If you're like me, knowing about those slight imperfections will drive you up a wall every time you see them. Worst case, you make them look even better than they did originally.

Then I have the problem of matching the stain so the whole beam doesn't stand out. That could be pretty hard.

I would just pull those fake beams and do something differently if there are structure, not just some wood to attach those beams. If all that wood is behind the 60's fake covers, to hold them up on the ceiling. I would take it all out, and then patch the ceiling.
