We finally put up the bead board. Only problem is, no chair rail, yet. My gift card from mother day to Lowe's covered just enough to buy the bead board and a package of paint rollers. So next paycheck we will finally get the chair rail and paint.
If you haven't used an air compressor nail gun, I would highly recommend such a fun tool. A little scary at first, but totally fun.
We really had no idea what we were doing and just sort of went for it, I'm sure I should have done all sorts of research on the best things to do, but I was impatient and I've waiting for this since we first moved in. None the less, I very much love it.
