How to attach trim near the ceiling?
We are very close (maybe four days) away from finishing the kitchen. All that is left is cabinets, trim, plumbing, and flooring. I suggested to go buy the wood to finish the cabinets, and my mom said we need to do the trim first, where the paneling meets the ceiling. Okay, im cool with that. Probably easier than bending over a cabinet to do it later. My question is how the hell do i attach the trim?
My kitchen is framed with 2x4's, 16" OC. There is a 2x4 at the top of the wall, with what looks like (i could be wrong) a piece of 1/2" plywood on the top of that. Above the plywood is the rafters. Paneling nails are not long enough to reach the plywood thing, but the trim is not wide enough to be nailed into the 2x4. Paneling nails are not long enough to hit the rafters either. Using longer nails means a bigger head and therefore easily visible. The trim is about a inch tall, and concave-shaped in the front.
How do i do this? Would construction glue work?
Ceiling is made of textured hardboard, wall is made of masonite board paneling. Attached a pic.
