Nursery Wainscoting Project

 

comparison

Shortly after my wife found out she was pregnant we started getting busy on baby planning. We both really liked how wainscoting looked in magazines and online nursery ads and because we are super naive project people we thought “hell, why not?” So finally after months of work is the completed interior of the room with just a few remaining minor corrections. Here’s the journey!

Our office space didn’t know what was coming at all…

We also added interior glass panel french doors so we can keep a better eye on the baby while allowing that room’s light in through the rest of the house. Something I have to finish before our baby shower next week (ahhhhh!!).

All in all it was a very time consuming project requiring lots of aspirin, the purchase of lots of expensive new tools, and patience when things don’t go as planned. As my wife added after I finished painting “it’s the fanciest room in the house,” I believe it will stay that way for the foreseeable future. I love the results but I do not see myself ever willingly doing wainscoting again.
