Cranking along on the bath project, today we worked on the window trim and finished off the beadboard trim. I even have a sneak peek of the new paint color! Before adding the trim, we painted the walls to give us a nice base and to make it easier to do the final painting. It doesn’t look all the spectacular yet, but the gray really pulls out the gray in the new curtain and the marble mosaic tile.
After a couple of coats of paint, we installed some molding and a cap to the beadboard, first giving the gap between the beadboard and the sheetrock a heavy bead of caulk to seal the drafts. Once the trim was installed, Dan caulked it well with some latex paintable caulk. Once that has cured, I’ll give the trim another coat of white paint, and touch up some of the other places Dan caulked. I can’t get over how good it is looking, even if I do say so myself. It is back to work for both of us tomorrow, but maybe this weekend we’ll get the ceiling painted.
