If you are going to paint this surrounding a door or entry way, by all means purchase it. However, if you attempt to stain this piece, your best bet is to take your business elsewhere as in a different company altogether.
We bought the product and kept it in its plastic covering in the garage for a few weeks, resting upon sawhorses. After putting the third coat of polyurethane to a walnut stained ( two coats of the walnut stain / sanding etc. ), I took apart the plastic coating of this trim set and proceeded to clean it with mineral spirits. I let it dry overnight and applied the first coat of a walnut stain to the entire set. I set a garage light over it for the night as it sat in the garage to dry. The next afternoon, I proceeded to apply the second coat of stain. The material began to bleed the first coat as it dried creating lumps/puddles on the wood surface. After using a combination of 0000 steel wool/ paste wax/old linens and cotton rags to dry and clean the wood surface, the surface remained blotchy and disfigured.
It is just cheap and if you do not want the " wood look or feel " , then by all means paint it and hang it. If you want a quality wood appeal / look towards your door/entry way, The wife and I are heading to Lowe's to find some quality wood.
That just proves a point; there are certain things we buy at Home Depot and certain things we buy at Lowe's, thank goodness they are just a mile apart in our home town.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BJC01 Excellent Package Deal
This trim package contains everything you need to trim out a normal size door with nice fluted trim. The wood is a clear hardwood with no major flaws of any type and no knots. The wood is already smooth enough out of the package to stain or paint without sanding saving a lot of time. Installation was a breeze. If you are looking for something with a little more character then just the standard casing this would be a good alternative.
