In my Do It Yourself day dreams I imagine myself surrounded by walls with a little more character than Orange Peel or Skip Trowel textures. They're covered with wood... only I went and wrecked them all up with fantastic paint colors.
So naturally after spending most of Sunday in a lucid state of day dreaming my way through wainscotting the entire house, I wanted to share some of my inspiring images with my fantastic readers!
Only, after getting half way through gathering my pics for this post I checked my Google Reader to find that my skinny southern toile loving high heel sporting sister The Nester was having the same dream.... and she posted first. So, I'll let her advise you all on the bonus's of fantastic trim work while I just show you the pics. Arg... I hate being 13 hours too late! It's like finding the perfect thing at Good Will and taking it to the checkout only to find out that it was half price YESTERDAY!
Picures?!? Right! Coming right up! LOVE these walls.
These are great too! Somehow, I believe that if I had wainscot on my walls there would never be fingerprints. I told you I was in a lucid state on Sunday....a loony and lucid state. In reality, it just means that I wouldn't be scrubbing paint off the walls while trying to remove peanutbutter and jelly or the well adhered booger. Nester's house doesn't have boogers on the wall. I'm sure of it.
No PB&J, No boogers.... just clean shiny walls. Clean... painted wood. Ahhh.....
Where could you use a little wainscot?
