Don’t Worry, They are Very Easy to Make
Years ago, when I was first thinking about starting a diy molding site, I debated long and hard over whether or not I should include a project difficulty scale, like other diy sites have.
Ultimately I decided against it because none of my projects are very difficult, even the ones with so many layers of moldings around them. More layers of moldings rarely means more difficulty, just more time to complete.
And these triple pilasters make this point perfectly.
They may look complicated to build, but I assure you they are not.
Like most of my designs, all you need to do is build an mdf core, nice and square, and then wrap it with moldings.
I’ll take you through each step of building these highly detailed fireplace pilasters, with lots of pictures to help guide you.
