This is just a simple question but I'm working with 22 doors in my house and I don't want to get in over my head. I want to replace the door trim with something more decorative but was wondering if the old door trim will be a major pain to remove without damaging the frame. Is there an easy tip that I should be aware of? Any suggestion would be of great help! Thanks!

Dear MG,
The easiest way to remove old molding is with a flat wrecking bar. Make sure you place something like a 12" putty knife behind the bar to spread out the pressure and not damage the wall. Pry the molding out about a half inch, tap it back into place and remove the nails that will be sticking out.
