Moldings

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.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some additional frugal tips to save money on moldings.

 

- 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.
