100% Done with 50% of the Dining Room

I put the finishing touches on the paneling on the North wall of the dining room this weekend. Overall, I'm very happy with the results. One thing I will do differently in the future is to not use a roller to put on the primer if I'll be using a brush for the final coat. It took a few thick coats on the recessed parts of the wall to get good even results.

I need to either get a better camera or learn how to use mine better, because these pictures are way too grainy and the red color doesn't look anything like it does in person.


  1. I can see you did a whole lot of work.

    In all the photos of bungalows I've seen, the woodwork was originally stained. People restoring them later have to strip paint off that intermediate owners have put on...

  2. Hi, Joe:

    I really like the work that you've been doing on your home. Would you be interested in submitting some of your photography to Old House Journal Magazine? We're currently running an article on weatherstripping that your images would work well with. Please email me at if you're interested. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

  3. Hi, again!

    Sorry...I gave you our old address. Please email me at
