When I was first thinking on Moulding Month, I was thinking I'd reserve this last wall to do something spontaneous. Crazy. Completely, totally different from anything else I'd ever done.
I changed my mind. This room is my son's window bed room.
Remember this project? Biggest nightmare headache piece of crap project I ever took on?
(I need to do some "frown" up there. It's on my to-do list.)
This room already has a moulding motif of beadboard, and I need to stick to that. Keep some congruity. Don't I?
Course I do. Let's get right to this. No more explanations!
Behold! The wall before!
Does anyone even say "Behold!" anymore? Besides Satan? ("Yes, Satan? Ooh. . .sorry. I thought you were somebody else." name that movie.)
So this wall is opposite the window bed. I made that chalk/peg board eons ago-- it was one of my very first building projects. It was a Pottery Barn knockoff and I thought I was the best mom ever.
It's been used probably 3 times, and not for 3 years. Kids-- can't live with 'em, can't--
And. . .drumroll. . .. the after:
I really like it. I just threw up some random crap up there so you can see that he's now got a little picture ledge to use at his discretion.
Oh my heck I think this room needs to be repainted-- this beige has pinky undertones that I can't even deal with.
The breakdown of materials:
It's as simple as that. I could have routed my MDF and given it a fancy edge, but I didn't, and I'm totally okay with it.
But I will tell you what,
the Daddy-o picked me up this badical multitool at Harbor Freight last weekend (Thanks, Daddy-o!)-- this thing, it's unreal. It's amazing. It's magically delicious--
Normally with other multitools I've tried, it takes me 5-10 minutes to cut through beadboard. This thing took me 30 seconds. Shocked and awed.
So whadaya think?
I guess. . . technically. . .the wall to the right is actually thee final wall that could be mouldified. I always think it doesn't count 'cause that front-facing bookcase I built is screwed into the wall. But let us not speak of it now. It's too soon.
