Could your door use a fresh new look? You’d be surprised at what new trim can do to refresh the look of your door, or even the room that it’s in. By choosing wood molding, you are able to customize the trim to your style and your needs.

It’s important to have the right materials and the right tools. For the average DIYer, this task is not impossible, but it will take some time to complete. Thankfully, Mark Clement of MyFixItUpLife is here to show you a complete tutorial on how you can refresh your door with new trim.

Tools Needed

  • Combination Square
  • Sharp Pencil
  • Measuring Tape
  • Nail Gun
  • Miter Saw
  • Ladder


  • Always have a sharpened pencil on hand to mark accurate measurements.
  • When nailing the trim, nothing should “curve” Real wood is straight and flexible.
  • Keep measurements accurate by measuring the same way.
  • Be sure the nail gun is as straight as possible when it’s in use.


Adding trim to your door is a great way to enhance the look of your room. This is a great project to DIY with the right tools, or contact a pro who can help install your new trim perfectly.
