These homeowners had gotten tired of the border around the top of their bathroom. But some borders can be the Devil to remove. So this savvy lady came up with a simple and handsome alternative.

Another option would be to paint the border and the wood trim semi gloss white, to match the crown molding. This would give the effect of really wide crown molding, and look quite elegant.
