Bathroom Molding Help

Posted by bwfitz (My Page) on

Hi, I am a first time poster trying to clean up a mess made by a bad contractor. We have an alcove tub, and on the outer walls of either side, he ended the wainscoting and trim abruptly, without any other trim. Unfortunately, the gap on the right hand wall is about one inch winder than that on the left. Whatever solution will have to account for that. I was thinking about regular casing molding, and I put some up but it looked ridiculous where it met the baseboard and crown. Should I use cove molding? With the cove, there is no way it will be deep enough to merge with the end of the wains cap molding. Also, I have limited skill - I can handle cutting moldings, but I am by no means a woodworker.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

You will get better help if you post on the on-topic side; this is the photo gallery and folks don't really come here to answer questions.
