    I am looking for a way to attach the trim so it can be removed and replaced easy. I cant move the blinds or match the lacquer paint. The first picture shows the trim in place. The second shows command strips but they only last about a month. The third shows what I have to work with.

    I just bought a house, and it has lots of wood trim around the windows and doors. Some are real wood (light brown, shows grain), and some are plastic moldings (light brown, with phony "grain"). I want to make these a dark cherry red color. So I'm looking for a colored finish that I can apply to...

    Hi, I am a newby to trim. I have done crown molding, chair rail and base molding successfully in my previous house.

    All the windows in my house have sills that extend 2" past the window on either side. I would like to add traditional 2.25" trim to match my door trim. If I use this trim, there will be a 1/4" over hang. Any idea how to extend the sills to properly allow for a 2.25" trim? Or could there be...

    My wife and I recently inherited an oak entertainment piece that will not fit into the room we want it to go in because it's too large. I might be able to fit the piece if I removed the crown molding at the top. This would make the furniture narrower by about 5 inches total (2.5 inches on both...

    While drilling a pilot hole for fastening the loop section of a bar latch on a door the bit broke off, probably 1/8" deep in the hole. Do I have any options other than moving the whole assembly, filling the holes and trying again?
