'Cause I want to give you the the low-down. The 411.
First I want you to know, that you can judge me all you want. Because I use plywood when I do my wainscoting.
Yep. $11, cheap-o, quarter inch, ply.
I believe everyone should keep a sheet of ply around for just such emergencies.
Aaaah, the freshly cut smell of ply.
So, what am I telling you? I'm telling you that the cost of my hallway molding was a total of $11. And I need my projects to be that cheap when I've got a list like I do. I'm not made of money, here!
Second, I want you to know about ze doors.
So very simple. Caulk between your existing molding and your new so it looks more seamless. Spill caulk onto your carpet. Swear. Run out of caulk before you finish all 5 doors. Swear.
It's just that simple.
Okay, okay. So those backcut pieces on the sides are a bit annoying. But that's what spackle's for when they don't exactly meet up, okey dokey?
And I would like to take this moment to say, that I love the new molding over my boudoir's french doors.
"#2" is the first number we start with in this here hall. Why? 'Cause they (as in the Hob Lob) didn't have a #1, and I'm waaaaay too impatient to wait for a #1 to come in.
Plus you know how they tell you that "everything we have is out blah blah blah." And that annoys the crap out of me.
Third. Or fourth. I don't even know what number we're on anymore? The mirrors.
The large one I bought. The rest, I made. I don't want to talk about those mirrors, because I like them, but they're kind of Monet's. They look great from afar, but up close, they're a real mess.
And that's all I have to say about that.
I love my hallway. But take a tip from me, when you blame the bathroom pocket door and it's being "jammed" on your boys, maybe you ought to use the ole noggin', and realize that when you put molding onto that same wall with 2 INCH NAILS, That door's not gonna budge.
