Black is Black
I am finally starting to get the molding up in the dining room. This room has no molding at all. It is hard to believe that at one time the room looked like this.
Then it started to get put together again.
The windows have looked like this for a long time without any molding and without curtains.
Since I have been on a curtain binge lately, I figured that it was time to get the curtains up in this room. They have been packed away for three years. I had to do a little restoration work on the window sills since they had been destroyed back in the 1950s when this house became apartments. So I found some old 2 X 4s in my basement and repaired the sills using some really long screws and Bondo.
Then I measured up some pine boards and painted them black to match the fireplace mantle and nailed them in place. I got the curtains up too.
So the first picture above has become this. I still have the chair rail, picture rail, ceiling molding, three doorways and the baseboards to do but at least I've started.
We are in the eleventh year of our ambitious three year project!
