We actually did this project a year or so ago, but everyday that I see it, it amazes me that my husband and I did it! It looked easy enough to do, but actually was a bit harder than we anticipated. I was inspired to do the wainscoting from a magazine. The whole thing cost us about $200 in materials and then we were off to the races! It took a whole weekend to complete, but well worth the time and energy. Plus it's always nice to put a stamp on your home that is uniquely yours to enjoy.
