DIY Project Parade & French Door Trim Update

When we installed French doors in the kitchen in place of a single door, we put up inexpensive mitered skinny trim. You can see it in the back ground here:
The original trim in this old farmhouse is wide and chunky.  Here’s a picture of the pantry door in the kitchen:
Since we’re remodeling the kitchen,
We changed out the skinny door trim for a wider/matching look using Dutch Boy’s Trim & Cabinet paint (Ultra White) and a Purdy paint brush.
Now it has the same look as the rest of the original farmhouse trim.  
See that automatic door closer?  You can find one here: Ryobi Doorman Door Closer – found at Rockler.
Next up – framing that window and baseboard trim!  I do love that the door trim now matches the rest of our old home’s character.  What do you think?

See how we did it at The DIY Club.

Let’s see what you’ve been up to!
