I'm excited to share that we finally got around to wainscoting our living room! While we'd talked about it a lot for the past few months, it never made it to the top of our priority list. Thankfully two weekends ago we got a little bored and decided to jazz up our otherwise boring 20ft tall tan walls with some tall, white wainscoting! We thought the color, texture and material change would break up the otherwise big, boring walls.
We took it a step further than we'd originally planned and wrapped the trim into the similarly lacking kitchen as well. My ever-talented hubby had the carpentry (MDF box frames with new trim on top and our salvaged base boards on the bottom) done within 24 hours then the painting (two coats of Sherwin Williams' Steamed Milk in semi-gloss, an off white used for our trim throughout the house) took another afternoon. I helped with the painting and was his extra set of hands on the table saw, but this project was 98% him. How great did he do?!
Thanks for checking it out barbies!
