    I suggest you print a photo and take it to your carpenter, or lumber supply company and have them identify parts for you.

    Do you happen to know if those are replacement windows? I'm trying to figure out my options for replacing crappy replacement windows and making them look nice / like they fit. Your work is beautiful!

    Thank you. This project contains both original and replacement windows. New windows are Kolbe.

    I'm not clear - you say Simply White is a similar colour - what was actually used on the trim? Thank you -

    I don't recall specific instructions; however I believe the walls were floated smooth (referred to as Level 5). It is possible there was a fine nap roller used to apply paint.

    As these two items are original to the old house, I recommend that you shop on-line for a source.

    This newel post was installed with the original construction. I have no information specific to this post.

    I don't have the exact measurements on the trim, but your guesses look consistent with what I think they are. I suggest a mock up on your site before making the final commitment.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

By a nose. A quick way to make a great first impression is to place a fragrance over the doorway where your guests will enter. Just a light spritz of your favorite room spray on the door will give guests a lovely scent as they enter your home.

Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to Architectural Details Make All the DifferenceJan 3, 2016

Doorway casing. Encasing a large opening with trim provides a great deal of character. Quite often, wide doorways are simply finished with rounded Sheetrock corners — a lost opportunity to add interest. One benefit of encasing them is how the trim provides a place to stop paint when switching colors from one room to the next.

Kimberly Collins Jermain added this to What to Know Before You Paint Your Walls WhiteFeb 19, 2015

5. Use White to Expand SpacesRooms painted white appear larger due to the amplification of light. Shadows and edges also diminish in white spaces. When creating a palette for your home, try to keep in mind that cool white drops back in space and can be used to enlarge and open your smaller spaces. But remember that spatial perceptions and human habits of navigation are improved when successive rooms on one floor unfold with subtle shifts in hue, not sharp contrasts. For example, using a white that deepens in color as the rooms get larger can diminish the size variation from one room to the next. Find a white that you like on the paint company’s fan deck that you are using. This color can be painted on the walls of the smallest room. Then use the next darker value of color on the next largest room. Use the value (darkness or lightness of color) to enlarge or reduce the overall size of each space. Your guests will not be aware of the change from room to room, but will compliment you on the calm and comfortable home that you have created.

Architect Tim Cuppett also preserved the graceful and restrained newel post and stair rail in this Austin, Texas, home. He suggests shopping online for similar pieces of architectural salvage.
