All throughout our renovation, we have planned to put up bead board about 4 ft up on the walls and paint it white...aka wainscoting. This is the reason we have not been too careful with the lower half of the walls. Smoothing, covering holes, and even painting have been far too much work for a spot that was soon to be covered up, so we have definitely neglected the lower half of the room. I think it is pretty self-explanatory, so I won't go into too much detail, but I will post up some pictures so you can view the progress. I think it looks really great, and I can't wait to get it all caulked and get the final coat of paint on it!
Of course, our creativity just HAD to come in to play, because nothing could just be easy, right? Some expert measuring work and a clever light-switch frame make this wainscoting truly one-of-a-kind! We also installed the top and base-board trim...that is when it REALLY started to look good!
