There are also ones with pretty intricate designs. I thought that the basket weave one was way awesome and am still trying to think of somewhere or something I could use it on.
This ridged one caught my eye as well.
I ultimately went for simplicity and picked out a small flat piece. I measured out how much I needed and then made the cuts with my miter box (me and this thing have become best friends over the last few months!)
I painted them the same espresso that I used on the vanity. It only took two quick coats.
I finished them off with my favorite top coat, Miniwax Polycrylic in clear satin.
It goes on kind of milky, which freaked me out the first time I used it. But it dries completely clear and it works great on white or lighter colors because it won't yellow over time like polyutherane does.
I first tried to just use hot glue to apply it to the counter so that I could easily change it up later on. But the hot glue pretty much refused. I don't think I've ever seen hot glue refuse a surface that way before!
I feel like it really finished the vanity off and adds that little bit of character that I was looking for.
Isn't molding great? I used it to enhance my DIY entry table and my DIY Plank wall!
What amazing things have you done with molding? I'd love to hear about them :)
Linking up to these awesome parties!
