Home Improvements On Spare Bedroom

We're starting our spare room. We've got this picture in our head of a room with easy green walls and white wainscoting. On the back wall, we see a mural of a tree and maybe some birds. Until we finish however, to the left is what we actually see. We've actually finished painting the walls now and are in the middle of the wainscoting.

Wainscoting is super easy to do if you have the right tools. Luckily, we do. A table saw is really nice for corners. I can't imagine not having it. For around the windows, you'll want a jigsaw. For faster strait cuts, a miter saw fits the bill perfect. Finally, for putting up the planks, the air gun really speeds things up.

You can see on the right here that we finished the paint and are now in the process of putting up the paneling. Actually, we've only got about 6 more boards to go before we're done. That is one board cut in half long ways, about 3 full boards, and two boards with 45 degree angles so they are flush on the corner.

Lord willing we'll finish that today, we can start on the chair railing Saturday. Then again, the weather will be nice so we may be looking at lawn work.
