faux crown moulding

So, here's a nifty (and thrify) little idea Chris and I picked up from his HGTV iPhone app.
It's homemade crown moulding!!! First, you pick out two types of trim that compliment each other and the existing door trim and baseboards in the room.

Next you nail both pieces to the wall, leaving about 1/2" to and inch between them.
By the way... that little corner piece is wonderful little device that helps simplify the process if you only have a hand saw! And I think it makes it all come together nicely. :)

Lastly, you fill all the holes and edges with wood glue, sand it down and paint it all white!
......and Voila!
