Very nice. I like what you did with the wainscoting. This may be an option for my living room once I start on it.

Well done, Mr.Trim! Do you make your own mouldings? What’s the type of paint you use on them?

As usual this is an outstanding job. Personally I don’t like wood and paint but diversity is what makes thing interesting. The 3 piece crown looks gorgeous.

thanks for the post.

Nice work MrTrim. I like that extra little shelf above the closet.

I wonder if it needs a glass cover to prevent it from getting dusty? I can’t imagine too many people getting out the ladder to dust it each week.

ain’t that the truth!!
when I facilitate parenting programs and anger management programs for parents that is one of the messages I try to get across: what do you want your children to be like when you are “old”? How you treat them now is developing who they will be when it is their turn to care for you!!
