Adding crown molding to pax wardrobe.
The wardrobes aren t attached to anything right now we still have to secure them to the wall add crown molding and then get those walls planked behind the bed for the finishing touch.
We still need to add clear glass knobs onto the doors.
Not gonna lie it takes some time and effort to get a custom look.
As for the top we may add crown molding to it eventually but for now we just wanted to finish this project on up.
Adding crown molding to the top visually connected all the wardrobe sections and immediately changed the feel.

Below is a photo of the finished built ins with window trim around both windows and baseboards all finished.
Since we re the only ones who will even look up and see it s totally fine that it isn t 100 built into the wall.
And that s it for now folks.
I would love to do this as looking into pax wardrobes but want a more expensive custom look but have a question obviously the baseboards and crown moulding are glued fitted to the floor and ceiling but i would still love to add the wood trim and drawer fronts.
Finally shirley couldn t wait to get her books onto the shelves we re pretty excited about how it.
