~Hurrah!~

We have all the trim installed in our living room and dining room!

This picture will allow you to see every type of trim that was installed:



In a nutshell, the crown molding was removed, painted, and put back on, the trim around the doors was made "groovy" (*giggles*) with bottom pieces and top pieces added (sorry, at this late hour I can't think of the terms for any of the pieces!), the plank substituting as trim work was taken off, sanded, painted, and put back on. BUT a decorative top piece and quarter round were added, making it look like real trim work!

The difference to the rooms is amazing! We praise the Lord for the help that our friend from church has given us for this huge job!

We still have some painting left, hardly anything compared to all the work that has gone into our house these past few months!

oooooooh Tammy----

It is beautiful!!! All that trim just looks so rich and elegant. I'v always thought it really finishes a room. If I ever build a house, I would be want a smaller, high quaility one with TONS of trim; windows, doors, crown and base.

Enjoy,

Trixie

I bet you are loving your beautiful remodeling; it is stunning. Crown molding adds so much! I love the corner pieces.

Thank you all very much for the kind comments! The crown molding and the corner pieces were there when we bought the house. We just painted them. It really does change the look of the room! Oh, yeah, and the previous owner had installed the crown molding flat against the wall, not on an angle as it is supposed to be. So I guess we did change it a bit! =)
