Brian got the chair rail up and painted. I have to say it is beautiful and adds that extra touch. I was sick (yet another bug from the ER) and sleeping while he was hammering for hours upon hours but other than that all went smoothly. Also newly done is the paint on our beloved bedroom set. This is our handed down Ethan Allen set. We loved the look of it and if we could have made it work would have loved the color too. But decorating with the green in the bed was definitely a challenge. We opted to paint it a rich brown color and keep the wheat stain on the tops of the night stands and the dresser. Here are some pics of the transformation. I can't wait to show you the finished product. It should be nice. We are just one more step closer to a real grown-up bedroom. Does that mean we have to grow up? Eesh!
