You know, there’s some jobs I tend to try and fade in the background while my fiance’s doing it because I’m too chicken.
It’s counterproductive. But after teaching myself how to fit coving, I now know I can do it.
It’s a great feeling and I’m so happy with the results.
What I was worried about were the mitred cuts. Why? Because I remember the mitre box tool we used in another room didn’t give the right angles.
We also had leftover coving in the shed that still had unsed pre-cut mitres. But, if I were to share my installation on YouTube, it wouldn’t be much useful if I never cut my own.
So I used these as a guide to help me visual while cutting with a Wickes mitre coving tool.
In total, this job roughly cost about £35 for our large bedroom. If you want to follow along for help on yours, then here’s a full video on how I did it!
