{Update} Updating our Abode - What would you do with this?

Recently I posted this asking what you would have done with that.



Well, here's what we did.  Added a more simple header and changed out the side moldings too.



We also added a coordinating molding over the front door to tie it all together. 




What do you think?  Did we do the right thing?  I think it's definitely more our style.  Want to see the other updates we've done? Click here.

That looks WAY better! I have to ask...did you put the previous thing up there? Well, either way, the current look is so classic and looks like it could have been there forever. Nice job!

MUCH cleaner! I like the classic lines that add that understated weight to the moldings. Good choice.

Sabrina..(resounding)NOOOO we inherited the previous pediment when we bought our house. :)

Thanks Sunny and Nicole!

We like it much better and it doubles as a narrow display shelf if we so choose.

The old style looks like it was inspired from old Caesars' Palace in Vegas

I remember having my picture taken in front of that thing. While it was great for Vegas, I wouldn't want it in my home.

Good job!
