I have some antique door frame molding that I would like to recycle and install in my home. However, there are many layers of paint which has obscured the beauty of the delicate carvings--swags of flowers, vases, etc. My contractor said that he is not sure how to handle anything with that much detail. This came out of a mansion in the Bronx, and would really top off my recent renovation (which I had to do because of a burst pipe in the ceiling which destroyed much of my home).
