Wanna look see...


I thought I would just show yall what we have done so far. Once again, this is Jesse using a miter saw. Maybe I should show him this just in case he has forgotten how it works!

If you look a bit closer maybe you can get the just of how it cuts angles.

I measured and cut out a poster board the size I wanted my box to be. We go through a lot of poster boards around here.

Just a look see before we painted.

Yep! Heres that kid again looking thrilled. Right~

And wha'la..its done..well almost. Still another wall to go but I didnt want to keep yall waiting forever.

Once you paint it makes the whole wall just pop. It really looks like wood molding!

I thought the corners would give us heck but Jesse put his math skills to work and impressed me!

I just sat back and watched..I only put my two cents in every now and then.


So this is where we stopped. We still have one more small wall to complete,sigh.

So here is the completed side now follow me to my backdoor I have something else to show yall!

Check this out. It's that neat beadboard panel that you can buy at your home improvement stores. I wanted a more casual look for my backdoor and I love it!

I must admit, this was a bit easier to do than the molding. You just measure and cut and glue it up there. I used liquid nails and a few tiny nails here and there. I also used caulking....lots of caulking...tons of caulking! Im working on curtains now for my kitchen.So just how much can I get out of one panel....you'll see!

  9. Looks great, Susie! I love how it's turning out in your DR, gorgeous. And I really really want some more beadboard in my house too.

    Did you have to remove the baseboards to put that up? That's what I don't want to have to do when I put up some beadboard. I'd love to know that!

  14. Susie, it is beautiful! And your son must have quite the sense of accomplishment! It really does make the difference in an already beautiful room.

  15. We keep going back and forth on if we want beadboard in our dining room or not. It would be so much easier than taking down all this paper...ugh! We could just stick it up there and be done! Well, not exactly, but you get my point. : )

    And that "moulding" looks GREAT! Your son is very handy! I can't wait till mine is old enough to help me with projects!

  21. Oh my goodness that looks so good! I love the colors and the molding. When my dad was here working with me a couple of weeks ago we were going to do the molding in my dining room. We..I decided I didn't really need it. Now I'm really sorry I didn't take him up on it!!

  24. Ooooo! That looks beautiful! I love the fresh feel of it. Is that a soft shade of blue? It is hard to tell on my computer. Would you share the name of it, please? I am looking for a very light, soft shade of bllue for our master bedroom.
    Smiles,

  34. Susie, it all looks wonderful. I have an electric compound miter saw that I got from my husband for my birthday a few years ago. It was what I asked for. We have been replacing builders baseboard with chunkier stuff as well as chair rail. I even used it when we added some more wood floors. Love it! Now I am going to go nuts with molding! Can't wait to see the finished room and curtains. Thanks for the inspiration, Pam
    PS I got a nail gun and compressor for my last birthday, woo hoo.

  35. It looks beautiful - we did the same thing in our dining room about 1 1/2 years ago, and I'm planning on putting it up in our office next. We also put up the beadboard in our girls' room. I love giving our new home some personality.

  41. Wow...that looks amazing! I need... must have one of those miter boxes. BTW, I'm dreaming about redoing our master bedroom, and have been totally stumped about it. When I saw the color on your kitchen walls, I was instantly drawn in and inspired. I think that color will be my starting point. Do you mind sharing the color with me? It is gorgeous!

    Thanks ~ Amanda

  44. I love it! Gorgeous! Thanks for keeping us posted. And I am all for child labor :) I make mine do their fair share around here!

  45. I Love Love Love all of it! I am such a fan of bead-board and wainscotting. Now, you must share the paint color name and brand for that amazing blue color. It is not juvenile, not too bright, it is just right and I so want to use blue in my "new" room. So, Please, Please, Please share.

    ReplyDelete
  46. It looks beautiful. We have beadboard all over this house...but I love the more formal look of the molding as well. May have to find a place to add that. I have also been anxiously waiting for and hoping that you would tell us all how to make the cute wooden chandelier in your sweet daughter's room. ( hint hint ) Have a lovely day!

  48. This is beautiful Susie.

    I'd love to have some beadboard in the condo. But I need a new floor more!! Going to see about that, one of these days.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  49. Love it! I showed my 8 y/o and asked him if he thought he could do that for me!:) I am getting beadboard in my breakfast nook in the kitchen and was going to leave it natural with a sealer, but I love your white, and maybe reconsidering for my room!
    Have a great weekend!

  56. Awesome! You must be so excited! I can't wait until my boys are old enough to put them to work like that. I got my "to do" list, and since the hubby isn't crossing things off it very fast, I'm sure those projects will still be on the list in a few years when the boys are old enough to really get some work out of them. I knew there was a good reason for having a house full of boys! Thanks for the inspiration.

  65. Hiya Miz Susie,
    Sorry I've not been around for a few days, work commitments and such, you know how it is! *smiles* But I want to say that your sweet Jesse is welcome to come up to NC & bring his miter box too cause it appears my husband isn't going to ever get around to installing chair rail molding in our dining room! Since Jesse is doing such a great job with your picture molding... well... you know what I'm thinking right? *smiles* Give him extra allowance cause he sure deserves it, wonderful job Jesse! Way to go!

  66. It's amazing what you can do with so little! I love how this is turning out! Thanks for sharing! I can't wait until my own Son is old enough for that child labor part...until then I guess it's just me! =)

    I clicked to ask you the color in your entry and found many others have, too! I have been looking for the perfect blue for my bathroom, and I think you found it! Would you please share the make and name with us? I just found your site and must go back for more inspiration.... Thank you!

  72. I just found your blog while surfing...so tell me, with your 'window boxes' do you have smooth walls, or do you have texture on your walls? Wondering how it would look without actually using paneling on my textured walls...

  73. I love it!!! We are planning on doing this to our home tonight actually...I'm so excited :)
