Bead Board, Trim, Caulking & Painting
We have been busy in the kitchen. Not baking! We removed wallpaper that I thought would be a great idea 12 years ago. Not so much when we went to remove it! Yuck!! Then we had the walls painted. We removed all of the trim, added bead board & new trim. Sounds easy enough but cutting trim is not easy! It took several tries to get it right & I don't think we will be doing it again anytime soon! Then came the even harder part, calking! It sounds & looks so easy but it is really time consuming. Definitely worth it in the end because it cover all of the little mistakes & makes a huge difference! I finished painting today. Unfortunately when I started painting all of the new trim, the old trim around the door way is so yellow! So I had to paint around 4 doors. Yep, 4, just in the kitchen! And one is double french doors with a transom above it. So I spent most of the day painting. Now with the nice new wall color & bright white trim, the doors look so yellow! Guess they will be next!
