I love moldings, I think they make the house, and while obviously in the picture below they were trying to be grand and impressive, it is maybe… uhem, just a little over the top, So, here is how Heather of Our Life in a Click fixed the pediment without any impediments… (sorry I had to!) Such a beautiful molding update!
Recently I posted this asking what you would have done with that.
Well, here’s what we did. Added a more simple header and changed out the side moldings too.
We also added a coordinating molding over the front door to tie it all together.
What do you think? Did we do the right thing? I think it’s definitely more our style.
Yes! You did the right thing, with this molding update
although I hoped you saved those other moldings to reuse on something…
But, maybe I am too much of a building materials pack-rat!

>Much better! The pediment was overkill!
>Nice job, looks so much better! That pediment – was a little too much!
>Wow that was a shocker! Thanks!!!
>Wow. The pediment reminds me of the tour I took of Mount Vernon!
It's definitely better after!!!
Blessings to you as you make your home!
>Hmmm, yes, before it was a bit Greek-templish (is that a word?).
