I hope everyone had a nice break and that we are all ready for 2021! Here is a quick snapshot of what I am up to in our house 🙂
We installed the chair rail and the rest of the wallpaper will be hung tomorrow! I am SO bad at math and was literally half a room short in paper. It arrived and we are now good to go.
Talk about math problems, we also are tackling adding board and batten in our foyer. All the posts online say how easy it is…well it would be on one plain wall but we have multiple walls all different sizes and they are not level and so, it is NOT easy! But, we are slowly getting it done. I am the hold up because I tend to question my husband and he is (irritatingly) always right and I really hold up progress (and yet, I can’t seem to stop myself from always thinking I am right until proven incorrect multiple times) and I have driven both myself and my husband crazy trying to space it all correctly.
I will share more later this week. In the meantime, here are my top five furniture flips from 2020!
The email I just received had a person using a milk crate as their work table. You need to get a portable Keter work table. They are on Amazon for $80 with free shipping. All the men in our family have one and they love them. It’s so much safer than working off a milk crate too.
Hi Jeanie, Thank you so much for your tip! I will absolutely look into it!
Love Love Love the buffet….great color!
Thank you, Mary!
Your furniture flips are the most beautiful online!
I’m so happy you’re trying Board and Batten I have been watching tutorials and thinking of doing it myself!
I was looking at your molding below my issue is how do you attach it to the molding or how does it abut the molding?
I just can’t seem to figure that out thanks for any help!
Yes, that is a problem that we also encountered! We are cutting our boards on a 45 degree angle that basically slopes towards the baseboard and isn’t noticeable. I didn’t want the board protruding over the edge of the baseboard. I hope to finish this weekend and will show more up close pics!
