Wainscoting solution

Before
The master bedroom upstairs had been rewired long ago, by smashing holes in the plaster, which had been covered with masking tape instead of repaired. (I have no idea why the pile of tan bricks was there.)

Wow. This picture sucks.

You can see a few holes on the left.

My friend Jenni had the great idea of installing wainscoting rather than adding to my lengthy plaster-patching list.


I picked a few photos from Pottery Barn and ran them past Blair the contractor. Look at what he's done.

Now

He also routed a little line in the chair rail so pictures can be propped on it. Sweet.

A coat of paint and this room is going to be sharp.
