Yesterday Steve and I worked on installing trim in the entry. We are probably about 2/3 of the way done. We were lucky because most everything went up nicely.
As I've said before this room is pretty small, so it's hard to get really good photos. We are planning to add 2 vertical pieces of oak on that wall, which will match the opposite wall.
The past few weekends Steve had rebuilt the framing around the side windows because it was not built properly in the first place. The thickness wasn't level with the outside wall and it didn't look seamless. A minor detail, but these are the details homeowners tend to be willing to address as opposed to when this building was entirely a rental.
Since he finished that we were able to install the trim.
Here's the same side of the room before demolition. What we have left to do are some of the horizontal pieces of trim that frame the room and the vertical decorative design and a few pieces of baseboard and one piece around the front door.
I felt SO HAPPY to get the room to this point. It takes a while, but it practically brings a tear to my eye to see things come to fruition.
I demoed the room around mid-June. And progress slowed to a halt over the holidays. My motto is it may take a while, but it's not a race and what matters is that you make it to the finish line with panache. That has to be my motto because these projects take us a while and we learn as we go.
Here's a couple more shots of the room when I first took the wallpaper off and now.
