Since I installed beadboard as the backing for my upper China hutch cabinets, I wanted a beadboard backsplash in the open portion between the two corbels. But Dang! I wish I would have waited to add trim to my corbels until after I installed them and the beadboard. Since I didn’t wait, I can show you how to cut beadboard to fit around decorative trim like details on corbels…or say — chair rail or crown moulding. If nothing else, here is another installment in the China Hutch progression!
How to cut beadboard
- A simple piece of paper is a super easy way to make a template of your trim detail.
- Press the paper up to the trim so it fold over on top of trim and then press your pencil into the trim/wall joint, following design contour.
- Then cut out with scissors.
Transfer design detail
- Transfer detail onto beadboard.
- Cut out with a jigsaw.
- Use caulk as adhesive to secure to wall
- Nail into studs with small brad nails
That is how to cut beadboard to fit around decorative moulding!
