Why am I telling you this? that brings me to part 2 of my story today.
#2. I have finally stumbled upon my new found store 'The Door and Trim Store'. I figured there had to be somewhere that had cheaper moulding than Home Depot and Lowes. So I've been on the hunt. And when I search for something, I WILL find it.. I found it! All the prices are half of the wherehouse prices. And they have a huge selection to choose from. Boy, did that get the wheels turnin in my little brain.... I found it on Thursday so today I went there and got some moulding and trim to try something in my bedroom.
Moulding is one of my favorite things for a home. It can add so much to any space. My brother and sister in law put molding above their windows kind of like the pictures I found here. It looks so good! (I don't have pictures of it) Here are some examples of moulding above windows that I really like...
#3. So I began my project yesteday. I used door casing for the sides of the window and the very top piece. The brown piece is a 4 inch piece of MDF as well as the 1 1/2 inch piece. I measured and cut them first. Something is wrong with our nail gun so I just nailed them.
They are all just slightly different. I liked option 1 the best, but Scott liked the 3rd one. So I went with the 3rd one. It's his room too right? :)So the next step was to put the thin piece right along the top of the window.
(Sorry the pictures are bad, I took them with my phone.)
I am happy with how the windows look so far and I cant wait to see the finished look. Maybe seeing them daily will help me decide what to do with the rest of the room. So more to come with my new looking windows.....
