The trim is glued down and nailed in place.  


The message board letter holder came with some challenges... because of the curve in the metal I had to add hollow spacers (lamp hardware)...  I'm hoping to replace these shiny new ones with some rusted ones.  I also needed to ensure the metal was secured at the bottom so I chiseled out a portion of the trim.  Its pretty snug- I don't think its going anywhere.  

 

I need a good method to age the new brass screw that holds the letter holder in place- does anyone have a good brass aging process?
