Window Trim


Been all over the net (Except for the right place obviously!) looking for a pix of window trim such as I saw on "All in the family"

Anyone know where I might see some pix of different trim ideas at?
I want to create something other than standard casing. I would like to incorporate crown in it as well.

Re: Window Trim


SWEET!

The one I saw was with simple 1x4 sides though.

I was thinking I may want to keep the trim more old looking.

Looks awesome though!

Great, that's where the bucket of water goes with the string attached to the door knob.

Re: Window Trim


Here's one I done in our current house. I had a custom molding knife cut using an actual old piece of millwork from a 1920's home.

Thank you. Ceilings are textured wallpaper to look like tin ceiling. I suck at finishing drywall but am a pretty good trim carpenter, so I wallpaper & put up crown to hide my mistakes. Fellers gotta know his limitations & strengths.

Re: Window Trim


Both are excellent (as always, bass) - just my preference but I like the built-up victorian (painted)....
