The last project we did before having Faye was installing baseboards in her room. In fact, we are pretty certain that was a factor in Faye’s early arrival. I love Chris’s update at the end of that post.
While we were so so grateful we were able to finish her room, the last 6 months our baseboard-less walls have been haunting us.
We finally carved out some time last weekend to cut and install all the boards–we used the same 4 1/2″ ones from Home Depot we got for Faye’s room–and over the last few days I have caulked and patched and touched up paint (#theclaw) so that now, 6 months later, we have completed baseboards throughout the main level!
Well almost done. We didn’t add baseboards to our room because we plan on wallpapering in there and know it will be easier to add those after the paper goes up–which we’re thinking we’ll start on in the next month. But back to the finished baseboards; after six months of no baseboards and another 2 of no baseboards or floors, we nearly forgot what it felt like. I dare say we got used to the dingy look. And now, suddenly, it feels so home-y in here. Checked that (and paint all the door and window trim…seriously #theclaw!) off our pre-party to-do list.
Shooting for a Greta room reveal on Monday!! Have a great weekend you guys.
