This week I got all the trim painted as well as the wainscoting that Michael installed. There is more wainscoting to go up in the kitchen but that will go up sometime this weekend. I also gave the walls a first coat of paint.
The following photo shows the hall leading from the living room to the bedroom. The window on the left is where the cellar stairs used to be. It is now an opening looking down to the new cellar stairway. It allows heat to flow and offers a nice open feeling in the house. I am thinking about building bookshelves on hinges for this window. That way if I wanted to close the window I could yet still have a useful function for the space when I do close it.
Here is the Wainscoting in the hall before it was painted.
reflect the sunlight so perfectly.
It blends so beautifully with my new farm sink, don't you think?
