Column crown help
Hello everyone, my name is Mike and I am new to this Forum. I am reaching out asking for some advice on a column top in my basement. As you look at the top the crown molding you will see that the edge of it sits about an inch proud of the tray ceiling one side and a quarter inch on the other. The carpenter doing the install said that due to the original column boxing in process not being square to the edge of the tray ceiling there would be no way to fix this without it being noticeable. I suggested using a smaller crown, he said that it would still be off on the underside of the sofit and the odd angle would draw your eye even more than just leaving the edge sit proud the way it is. We are planning on painting the first step of that tray ceiling a darker color, the under side of the sofit and column and post all in white. I don't know what to do I'd rather not pull it all down and start again but I feel like once painted that over hanging edge would be very noticeable. I thank you guys in advance for any help you can give.
