Our home is full of antiques, many which we still use. (That makes it easier during a power outage) Some are from his family, some are from my family, but most are auction and flea market finds.
So, fitting in with the style of the house, and antiques in it, we try to add more character when and where we can--sometimes its in the form of a light fixture, or antique door knob. One thing we have both always liked was wainscoting. Been talking about putting some up for over 6 years. I finally did some today, in the kitchen. There are several other areas in the house that I would like to put more wainscoting (behind the kitchen door for one, where the doorknob hits the wall making a dent in the sheet rock).
|Rebecca helped with the staining. I actually think it was easier staining it while up on the wall, than laying it flat .|
|Here is the finished project. That's my potato bin in front of it. When we pulled the tape off, we found a small bit of stain on the wall, but tomorrow after church I plan on touching up the paint in the kitchen as several places need it.|
