Oh how I love trim! In my mind, trim equals character. After removing every last baseboard and window molding in the house, I may have had a minor panic attack. Removing the ugly is easy. But replacing the entire house with trim and molding that will add character? On a budget? Yikes. Bring on The Family Handy Man, Cape 27 and The Charming Nest. All three had ways to make Craftsman style trim. I took the parts that worked best for me and got to work. Oh yes, I love trim!
Craftsman style trim around all of the windows.
And all of the door casings…
Gigi was relaxing so peacefully in her bed I didn’t have the heart to tell her to move so I could I picture without her little head!
And big surprise, look who moved to nap in my picture, yet again. When a crazy Boxer relaxes, you go with it!
And of course trim around all of the doors. This door I kept, and not because it was a budget friendly idea. I actually love this door!
And my absolute favorite – – board and batten. Talk about adding character!
I had to tweak my trim install to work around our weird house issues. I’ll post a tutorial on how I did our simple craftsman trim in case you have weird house issues too!
