Save money on old, unattractive moldings by just painting
them and making them "go away." If you paint the moldings the same color
as your walls, you will not notice them. The paint will also cover up
scratches and other imperfections in the wood.
some additional frugal tips to save money on
- If you can't afford new
moldings or to replace old moldings, just live without them until you can afford
to buy them. If your carpet goes right to your wall, you may never install them.
- Moldings are tricky to
install. You will save money doing it yourself, but take a free class
first at a box box store like Home Depot or Lowes.
- If you know a handyman you may
be able to acquire some used moldings and fix them up.
- Price check moldings.
There are many price points and designs.
