Just about everything a do-it-yourselfer needs to know about installing decorative trim is contained here. Peters (Popular Mechanics Money Smart Makeovers: Kitchens) covers all varieties of trim-wainscoting, columns, and ceiling medallions-providing detailed information about materials, supplies, and tools. Clearly written instructions, fully illustrated with color photographs, explain the installation of wall, floor, and ceiling trims. Special attention is given to window and door trim as well as troubleshooting tips. A wise purchase for all public libraries.
