I like this wall painted Kendall Charcoal, but it still needed some help. Some art and some moulding.

So I just glued a crosshead at the top! It fills out the space and adds personality. And it could’t be more simple.

Here is the exact crosshead I bought. And here is another link to compare prices.

Instructions

  1. Choose the right size crosshead for your window. There are quite a few options. Go bigger rather than smaller if in question.
  2. Apply long strips of painters tape to the front of the crosshead BEFORE applying glue.
  3. Flip the crosshead over and apply Liquid nails to the back of the where it will touch the wall. I’m sorry I didn’t get a picture of this, but you can see me do it in the 1-minute video at the end of the post!
  4. Apply it over the window firmly and press down the tape. That’s it!
