Crown molding seam showing under paint!


I installed some crown molding recently and everything went well. All the angles were near perfect, measurements were spot on, and everything looks good... except for this seam that sticks out like a sore thumb. I sanded it flush and painted over it but it still shows through. Any suggestions?

Here are some pictures:

I would say either you did not sand well enough or maybe something is bleeding through if you did not prime the wood before painting. Keep in mind fillers are a reasonable tool when painting wood.

Glossy paint tends to be unforgiving.

Re: Crown molding seam showing under paint!


I am home DIY painter (i.e. not a professional) but I think @ChuckF. is right. That your situation needs a lot and long of feathering underneath the paint of something that is not so reflective. Though I am not sure there is enough spackling or putty or low gloss paint that you can use underneath to create a smooth base.

Multiple coats, especially with some "coverage" coats underneath should help hide the seam but a sharp eye looking for imperfections may still notice.
