The Panel Wainscoting Begins

On Tuesday morning much to my surprise, I awoke to about an inch or two of snow. That's a big deal in Portland, Oregon and the meterologists had not forecasted it either so it was a complete surprise. Though I still went to work, it wasn't for long as the snow was still coming down pretty heavy and it was obvious the roads weren't going to clear themselves. So, I took a snow day which translates into productivity in the dining room remodel.

After a 2 hour adventure at Mt Tabor with Scully, I was able to start in on the panel wainscoting. I had the wood stove blasting away as well as some good tunes, and just really enjoyed the afternoon "off" creating the following:




I still need to add the cap as well as some other moulding but it's a start. I was pretty amazed by how much is changed the feel of the room so I'm all the more motivated to complete the rest of the walls. Pray for snow!
