But things just keep looking better and better. Every door frame that gets trimmed, every piece of baseboard, the wainscot that gets finish painted, and really- when Todd put together the chandelier and we hung it in the living room - wow! 


We've all been working our butts off, but the changes are really driving us forward. The more we do the more changes we see. Sandra started caulking the wainscot I had gotten up and painting it as well. Really pops. But I can't finish it until we get the antique mantel up. A picture of the kids unloading that last fall, yes last fall, is in a previous post. And to that end I made a couple small pedestals to set it on to raise it up about eight inches. Used maple plywood and stained it to match the mantel.

So tomorrow I'll go ahead and set that, attach the mantel to the fireplace, and try to knock out the rest of the wainscot before I leave town on Wednesday. Sandra can finish with the painting of that and the pocket doors, the kids can run quarter round and that room will be done, with the exception of a chandelier for it. 

 Then it's on to the living room. The original front window needs caulk and and paint and I need to create a complete mantel base for a 150-year-old mantel ledge that we picked up in Houston when doing the Barrel Race project. Once that's in, I can finish running the small amount of baseboard that is on either side, kids can run quarter round and that room will be done.

I think I may get pretty good at making mantels by the time this project is done. Have the den mantel to make as well. Not something I really wanted to learn - but. At least the den will be the last room to finish. It can't get done till all the cabinetry arrives.
