Adding Wainscoting and New Paint to Our Home
My husband and I recently added wainscoting and painted three rooms in our house. We did work in our dining room, living room, and family room – we had wainscoting installed and painted, and painted the top wall of all three rooms in just under a week. Whew! It was definitely worth all the effort we put in to it - we absolutely LOVE how it turned out!
We started by removing everything from our walls. Then we spent the better part of 2 days moving furniture, covering furniture, taping, spackling and sanding.
We then had the wainscoting installed. We had a day in between the wainscoting and painting (cue awkward comments from our visitors about how they “love the colors we picked….”) YIKES! Don't worry... we are not leaving our walls a striped disaster!
Our neighbor is a professional painter and was able to spray the wainscoting white for us. It was SO fast and easy - I loved his sprayer! So AMAZING!
We painted the top walls ourselves with Sherwin Williams Light French Gray.
