Dining Room Wainscott Progress Report

Wainscott and Plate Rail Installed

I got motivated to do some work in the dining room. I literally got more done in the past two days than I have in the past two years! Seeing Bungalowcious' finished interior really got me wanting to finish this thing already.

I spent about 9 hours on Saturday getting all of the new moulding cut and installed. Now it's just a matter of filling nail holes, priming, and painting. I'm hoping to be 100% done with the dining room by the end of the year.

Here's a shot of the other corner. Notice that two sets of the window sashes still need to be sanded and painted. I'm not looking forward to doing that in this cold weather.


  1. It's been good to see you back - thanks for sharing!

  2. Great wainscott progress! Looking good so far. :)

  3. I miss your blog posts. Have you finished the dining room?

  4. Sorry about the lack of posts. Work on the house has ground to a complete halt while I spend my "free" time working on a work-related project.

    I ended up caving-in and hiring a guy to finish painting the dining room. I'll see if I can get some pics up soon.
