Remove Excess Molding

Our house however, has too much molding. It has so many angles that M.C. Escher would've called it confusing. We have molding around the molding that’s goes around our windows. There is even molding around the light switches. Our project today is to remove the molding that goes past the window area. The molding has been like this since we moved into the house 6 years ago. It's a seemingly simple DIY, our hesitation has been a fear of digging into the walls, thus causing more work. That, plus the fact that it's in the main bedroom, which meant moving the furniture around. In the end this project was very simple. The excess molding was cut off and moved to its appropriate location. There was no damage done to the walls and the only work needed after removal was taking down the wallpaper, cleaning that area and painting it.
