Sometimes it’s the small little details that can make the difference in a home. I love older homes & even though we don’t live in an older home, we have some pretty decent moldings & trim. Of course, I’d love more of those, so to add a little pizazz here and there, I’ve found little ways to add some extra special details around this place. My dad built this old pine cabinet that is now in my laundryroom a LONG time ago. I spotted it outside under his carport one time and even though it was really hideous looking after he took it down from his utility room, I had him add some crown molding to the top of it. I knew I could make it pretty & it would be a perfect cabinet for my laundryroom makeover last year. I went to Lowes & picked up the small rope trim, mitered it & added it to the front of the door. Really makes a difference in sprucing up an old ugly cabinet. A new coat of paint & it changes the whole look of it.
This is one of a pair of corbels I added in the Diningroom doorway & it also adds some extra special architectural interest. These are actually resin, but I glued them in place with Liquid Nails. Painted them the same color as the trim & did a glaze over them.
These are just a few ideas on how to add a few interesting architectural details around your home too, even if you’re not blessed with having a house with moldings in abundance. Just a few little things like this can make a huge difference, so look around and see if you have anywhere to add some of these! Hope you all have a great weekend. I’m going to get some painting done this weekend, at least that’s the plan! That & watching Alabama football!
