Hello - Newbie into Woodworking .... & heartache of course!


Hello there!

Very interesting board you have here that I wished I would have found a while ago.

Hubby and I just completed our most serious woodworking project to date - trimming out our dining room in flat-panel wainscot, trimming columns with crown as well. In addition to replacing all the trim around windows and doors. Here's a before and after; We think it turned out really well.






On to the next project - outfitting the laundry with a mudroom!

I'm looking forward to getting a lot of good advice on here.

Sandy, Your job is terrific!
I write a design column in the Las Vegas Review Journal. Is it possible to get permission (and a larger jpg) of your before and after door?

I am writing my next column on painting wood moldings.

thanks,

Oh my, I would be tickled pink - only if you send me a copy of when it comes out.

I can send by email.

Here are a couple more of the columns (they were just plain boxed drywall) in the dining/family room.







As you can see, we got rid of all the brown molding, added crown and trim around the columns, painted the six panel doors and added the built up detail trim above the door.

Thanks for the compliments.

Wow! Amazing what a little trim does to change the appearance! Very nice.

Did you get your laundry room project done as well?
