We used anything we could think of for trim. The front two portholes are picture frames. The back window is a kitchen cabinet door frame without the glass. The side portholes are baby formula can lids with the centers cut out. The top rim of the back is a strip of bathtub caulk painted gold. The doors on the quarterdeck are shutters that we found in our garage when we first moved in 13 years ago. The ladder is from Shep's childhood bunk bed. Most of the molding was left over from other projects. The ship wheel was an ebay acquisition (we didn’t have everything lying around).
