Hi,
I am about to remove a room full of wood paneling. The room has very nice molding at the top and middle of the wall. Is there some trick to removing this molding other than prying it with a screwdriver ? It looks very expensive and I would like to reinstall after the paneling is down, so I don't want to damage.

Thank You.

Start it off with a stiff putty knife 3"-4" wide. It will slide behide the trim easier and cause less damage.

If it is painted start by cutting the joint between the wall and molding with a utility knife.
Then a putty knife to loosen it.
Then flat bar to work it free from the wall.
Don't use a screw driver.

Don't pound the nails back though to remove them. It will leave large gouges on the front. Pull them though from the back.
