Paint Around Molding & Trim

One of the rooms in my house has different moldings and window trim then the rest of the house. I would like to replace the moldings and trim with the same trim as in the rest of the house.

The trim I am removing is about half the width of the replacement trim I will install. I am concerned that there have been multiple layers of paint built up and that there will be a "ridge" where the old trim ends. What would be the best way to handle that ridge?

Should i use spackle or compound to smooth it out to the edge of the new trim? Its an old house - the walls are plaster. Thanks in advance!

Yes, you would need to level it out with spackling or j/c. Don't forget to sand and prime.
