I just got the 20 pieces I ordered yesterday. In the picture they look nice and smooth, ready to paint. In fact they are very rough. I’m surprised Home Depot would carry and sell a product so poorly made. If you want them to be nice and smooth like the picture, plan on sanding every one before you paint. Very disappointed.
Straight boards that were easy to cut due to 90 degree angle. First time installing crown, and it went great. Would highly recommend using a paint sprayer and thinned latex paint to provide a great finish that “stretches” to cover nails and caulk.
Quality trim, very easy to install. Clean miter cuts, easy to cope. Best of all looks great. I'm surprised this item has to be ordered rather than kept in store location. I used ship to store, trim was well packaged.
