front door trim

Hi Ken

I love your website! Using your wonderful tutorial — and with beginner’s carpentry skills — I was able to redo our atrium foyer entrance with an eared architrave today. Still have finish work to do but I feel very proud to say I did it myself!”

door trim

Patti joins the growing list of readers taking control of the moldings in their homes. As you can see, her front door and sidelights are already beautiful, and they deserve to wear the elegant surround she built.

And since eared architraves are a door trim style that’s been around since the dawn of classical architecture, what sh put her time, money and effort into is not going to fall out of style anytime soon. If ever.

Thank you so much for sending in your creation, Patti. You are an inspiration to us all!
