Tips for Finishing Trim Molding
By: Joe Truini
Finishing trim molding, such as door facings and crown molding, is often easier to do before it’s installed.
- Lay the molding to be finished on sawhorses to prevent drips and runs.
- Rather than finishing with a standard bristle brush, try using a small foam roller. Not only does the finish go on faster, but there are no annoying bristles to come off in the work.
- Once the finish has been applied, go over it with a foam brush to smooth the finish and remove any bubbles.
