Are you ready for the big secret craft room project?
Seriously, I know you've been on pins and needles.
We're getting beadboard! To say I'm excited is an understatement.
Thank goodness we are so very blessed to know a super, duper handy man.
Our house was built in 1963 and I'm pretty sure the baseboard is original to the house. I thought there was no way it was coming off. Years of paint made the wall and baseboard line appear as one unit. But our good friend, Ben, assured us it would be easy to remove.
I did my part and pulled off the quarter round this past weekend. Atleast I can say I helped do something other than just instagramming the event.
Sure enough, Ben had the baseboard off in about 15 minutes. And sure enough, it was original to the house. Real wood and real nails.
The most fun part was seeing the different paint colors hidden beneath the white paint.
See that really dark line that looks like a space? Well, it's not.
It's a dark, dark greenish-bluish color. Like a Hunter Green met a Navy Blue.
And the lavendar of course, which if my memory serves me correctly was the shade the room was painted when we bought the house.
And then we had this beautiful orange. What strikes me as odd is that this was on the baseboard....as though the baseboard was once painted these colors.
Oh if these walls could talk!
Look, there's Ben making the job look easy!!
We made a trip to Home Depot first, but ultimately liked Lowe's product better.
Now I just can't wait for the weekend to arrive!
Beadboard here we come!!
Thank you a million times over for helping us Ben!Add a comment »
