So workers are here finishing the trim work in my dining room. Here is a picture of the windows that they framed out. I just about died when I saw this header molding. The reason - because that is one piece of wood - not 3!
Here is what it looks like - I think this size is 4" and you can get it in 5 and 6" sizes as well.
My husband and I had no idea this product existed - see below where my husband went with a similar look for our Master Bath. Notice the top of the door and the horizontal piece that wraps all the way around the room on top of the vertical boards. ONLY that is 3 PIECES and 3 times the WORK!!! I'm sure it was more money too. Had we known! I guess the reason we didn't is because we have always picked up our wood at Home depot or Lowes to do our home trim work projects and I don't think they carry this stuff (unless I somehow just missed it). Obviously it is something the Pro's know about and probably use all the time.
Just thought I would save you the time and headache incase you are into DIY trim work. I'm really excited because I have always wanted an additional header at the top of every door in my house, just like we did in the bathroom - and now that is definitely looking like an easy and doable project!
I am so excited to show you all the dining room when it is finished - hopefully just another week!
