Covering Beams with Trim
In our small cape (1940) we removed a closet and opened up the kitchen to the living room. However, some of the walls were load bearing and getting the beams to be flush with the ceiling (and then just patching in drywall) would be almost impossible and/or way too expensive.
So, I've got to 'cover' these ceiling beams with trim/wood or something and then paint and/or stain. An older family member who is still stuck in the 70s suggested one of those foam 'wood' look coverings (no thanks!). I'm good with trim work, have a nail gun, mitre saw, etc. However, I don't know what I want the final product to look like! Can anyone point me to some pics so I can get some inspiration? Any suggestions? Thanks!!
