When we bought this house almost three years ago, every inch of the trim was brown wood. That was the style when it was built in 1986, but it made the house incredibly dated and dark.
Before we even moved in we started by updating the foyer with wall and trim paint. Since we were installing all new carpet it gave us time to paint all of the railings, too.
You don’t realize how much trim is in a house until you decide to paint it! After the foyer we worked on the dining room. It’s this room that made us fall in love with farmhouse door trim.Mike built this board and batten and then then added the farmhouse framing around the door. It changed the room so much. You can see the entire dining room makeover here.
Since we finished that room Mike has been working on updating all of our door trim in between other projects. As you can see we have a few more doors to go, but we’re getting there!
I asked him to create a tutorial while he was customizing the family room door. This trim can be done quite easily and costs less than $100 for this double sized entrance way. In his printable tutorial, Mike explained every step of the project. He included a lot of photos to make the instructions easy to understand.
All of those instructions and photos are in the downloadable printable. Framing out this door really changed this view and made the otherwise boring doorway into a focal point. The foyer trim is next on the list for updating.
