Wife would like some crown installed in the master bath room. Lot's of angles but certainly something I can do except I don't know how to approach this one spot. Kind of an odd arrangment where the walls and the skylight come together. Run it around and the crown would stick out. The other option would be to do returns just prior to the funky angle but that would just call attention to it. Any ideas? I told the wife I won't do the project until I figure this out first.

I would continue to wrap the corner with the crown. What are you going to do when you run into the left short side wall . it appears that the ceiling is sloped. are you going to stop at that point.????. anyway what I have done in the past is keep your horizontal lines lined up around the wall, at the sloped ceiling area I riped and laid a piece of window stool on top of the crown so the bottom profile stickes past the top edge of the crown about 1/8" to create another shadow line. when you come to the outside corner of the crown miter the sill back into the sloped skylight wall. I fell that would be another option. in addition to what atlantic suggested.

Here's a couple pics showing where I had to do something a little similar to a basement staircase.

In the first picture you can see on where the crown moulding at the tops of the columns extend beyond the ceiling and we made caps for them.

In this case we had to cap them because every time you walked down the stairs you would be looking right into the top of the crown moulding.

In the second pic you can see where we did a crown return to the left of the stair case.

Thanks for the ideas, pics and drawings! Jay, I really like your cap idea.......This forum rocks!

I thinking that a low profile piece "above" the cap may further soften the look. How about this run the crown just as you have drawm, insert the cap "inside" the crown flush with the top and then maybe a piece of base board laying back down on top of the cap (with lower profile to the front and higher profile to the back). Simple return to finish the end. I don't have the drawing skills Jay does but I think you all can follow my thoughts. It will be painted crown so it should blend in nicely with the ceiling.....or maybe something with a higher profile? or ???????
