Cedar Trim in 1900 Victorian?
just moved into a 1900 victorian, started to paint one of the bedrooms and in removing the hardware got a glimpse of the wood underneath. it piqued my curiosity, so i started to strip the molding around the window. the wood is very soft, reddish in color, smells a little cedary. i just have never heard of using cedar as trim. i thought it doesnt take paint very well. My question is, is it worth stripping the paint from all the trim around the windows and then going with a natural wood look, or should i just paint it?
