Anybody seen the info commercial for instant crown molding? I had to make sure it wasn't a Saturday Night Live sketch at first. They pull the camera away feal fast after the mitered piece is applied to the corner and only show the stuff from long shots. It's totally hilarious. Peal and stick crown what is next?

I'm waiting for the spray-on crown molding. That'll be the only way I can get it without a pile of upside down reverse cuts laying around.

I saw one of those "home improvement" type shows the other day showing how to "add an arch"...with a piece of foam screwed to the opening! (and it only cost $30!) No wonder people have such unrealistic expectations when they run head first into the actual cost of doing it the right way! Really makes my blood boil!

Expanding crown in the can, just spray it on the wall. They will label the can 'Rustic Abstract' and sell the hell out of it as the DIY'ers mug they're pop up table in a K Mart parking lot.

i actually participated in a consumer test with it. I made 500 dollars. I doubt the product will make that much

You're kidding! :biggrin: Did they just send it to you and you had to report back what you thought or was there more to it than that?

no, they contacted me, and i went to a meeting where they showed us how to use it, then they had us install it on these fake walls. there were 10 finish carpenters there. I think they basically wanted us to say that it was easier to work with than the real thing. and they would probably use our quotes on the product. Look and see if they have a quote from Clint Overton on it.
