Step 6: Wrapping the Frame

Picture of Wrapping the Frame

We have a pretty junky and ghetto lumberyard in my city, but if you're willing to get your hands dirty (with cowhide gloves on), you may stumble upon beautiful wood like this in such a place. These pieces are actually crown molding that had been left in the elements for a long time. I thought they would sand down well and, shoot, they sure did! I actually used the flat, back side of the pieces in order to get the look I wanted, but did use some of the front detail work at the bottom lip (I'll show at a later step).
