What to do with scraps of crown moulding?

Posted by natureperson (My Page) on

I have some scrap pieces of crown moulding left from my trim work. Do you have any ideas for what I could do with them? They are about 4 inches tall and vary in lenth, but most are not over about 8 to 12 inches long.

Thank you.

Hmmmm, what about shelves or put some small hooks on a piece to hang keys or something from. ~Anj

I used some crown molding as a decorative piece on the front of a planter my bro made for me. It just added that extra pizzaz to it. Hang onto it, you'll one day use it.

I was going to suggest a key rack or put knobs on one for a coat or towel rack.

I'm right in the middle of putting up crown moulding myself:) I saw something a while back,maybe Decorating Cents,the Trash to Treasure segment,where they used different pieces of crown moulding to make a spice rack,and I just loved it. It was painted a chippy white,or maybe the moulding was already white,lol,so it was a cottage-y,shabby looking piece:)

If you have stairs you could put molding along the fronts to decorate them, just attach it right under the "lip".
