First you will need to measure the piece and make a quick sketch with the measurements on it. Remember to bring this sketch with you when you go to the store!
Next you will need to collect your materials. This is the fun part because you get to decide the color and/or theme to go with. If you don't already have a tool go to your nearest hardware store and get the following things:

-Wooden moulding (should be located somewhere in the building materials)
-Spray paint (if you want to be better to the environment and yourself try getting a low VOC paint)
-Pencil
-Masking or painter's tape
-Tape measure
-Ruler
-Razor blade or Exacto blade
-Sandpaper
-Gorilla Glue
-Hacksaw
-Hammer
-Small panel nails (make sure they are deep enough to go through the moulding you choose!)
-Safety glasses
-A painter's mask or respirator
-A friend to help you!
