Small Change, Big Improvement

I wanted to add some trim to all my doors and windows at the farmhouse to make them look more chunky.  I was surprised that they actually make the rooms look taller.  Jason came over to help (well he actually did all the work, lol).  We used a 1×2 on top of the existing trim, a 1×4 flat against the wall and another 1×2 on top of that.  He cut the 1×2’s 1″ longer so we’d have a 1/2″ over hang.  He bought pre-primed pine and caulked the seams (pre-primed mdf was more expensive). Now I just have to paint them.  I absolutely love it and can’t wait to get the whole house done!! Thanks Jasoni!!  😉

P.S. It cost a little over $100 for 8 doors (front & back)
