the previous owners for some reason removed this plaster beam thing in the corner of the ceiling

now it looks all fucked with 3 sides of the ceiling having the beam thing and on one side it's ripped off and the ceiling paper is even coming off because of this


what would you advise?

Looks like the coving was removed to fit those blinds, it would be a simple job of fitting a new length but prob cant because of the position of those blinds.

but where do you buy these type of beams that will match the other ones?

is this stuff hand made or how does all this work?

the person that destroyed this to hang a few shitty blinds is an absolute moron

Could you replace the crown molding in the entire room so it all matches?

Depends on the age, if its fairly modern d.i.y stores sell them in lengths and some are even pre mitred at the corners, older styles normally have to be custom made,you can take a length to a company than produces plaster mouldings and they will duplicate it for you.
They are just "glued" in place with adheasive.

i guess i will look around in "do it your self" stores to see if they sell these things

how would you go about removing the other ones (to replace everything for matching) without destroying your ceiling?

1.  Remove shitty blinds.
2.  Remove the other crown moulding.
3.  Buy new crown moulding.
4.  Install new crown moulding.
5.  Caulk.
6.  Paint.

HTH.

i would say you remove a 2 foot section of one of the remaining moldings and take it to the hardware store and see if you can match it up

you can reinstall it and use wood filler to make it look like new again

Unless the shit is really really old, you can match it up at a hardware store



when you cut it flip it upside down and cut your angle and dont lay it flat on the saw, it has to be set on the saw at 45deg angle

what would you advise?

a couple of angles of what you want to show could be a help

are you asking how to put up a baseboard/crown molding to fill in the missing peice?

looks like a very simple job , you might even find studs behined the dry wall to screw a new baseboard to fit

you might be at a loss trying to match the pattern but home depot has a few patterns,  but you can either glue it with liquid nails caulking or like i said if you can find some studs to screw it in do that instead

if you use screws you want to counter-sink the baseboard and drill a hole through the baseboard first if your paranoid about splitting the baseboard with a screw, but do countersink  so when you screw it in the screw itself doesnt split the wood and the head of the screw wont stand out like a sore thumb

I have been cutting down trees all day and evening out/grading the soil around the Milk House.  I found one artifact today, an piece of an old railroad track buried about 9 inches deep.  I cleaned it off and it dates to around 1863 or so and is a piece of the old Richmond and Danville Railroad line.  Pretty cool find!

Yah, it doesn`t look to be anything special.  He could also just take all of them off -leave them off and make up for it by putting larger baseboards which would add height to the room.  I don`t know how tall his ceilings are, but I think that is a good option to consider.
