  1. Why did you delete my comment instead of responding?
    Can you post a picture of the baseboard moulding and how it meets the right hallway door trim.
    It’s cropped out of all your pictures and I’d like to see how it looks.

  2. Hi The Smiths, We used a jigsaw to cut the opening in the birch plywood.

    Hello. It looks very nice. What did you use to cut the opening in the birch plywood? Thanks.

  4. Your welcome and I am happy to hear from you today Jane.

  5. Hi! I stumbled upon your website in a Google search. I’ve enjoyed touring your posts and seeing you lovely projects come to fruition.

    Thanks for some great ideas!

  6. Thank you so very much Drew, you just made our day with such a nice compliment. You have an eye for detail with noticing the glass.

  7. The decorative glass is a nice touch. It really just adds that extra ambiance to the rest of the woodwork. Great work!

  8. Thank you Sue….so fast on the reply!. I know there is no norm but I feel the wider stiles with thick interior molding make it look so much better. Have a great day and thanks again!

  9. Hi Steve, it is nice to hear from you today. The height floor to rail is 34 1/2 inches. You have a very good eye as the width of the stiles without the shoe moulding is 4-1/2 inches. Hope this helps and let us know if you have any other questions.

  10. Hi Sue,
    Just stumbled across your site today looking for wainscoting ideas. I just started mapping out a lot of it in my own home but want a thick appearance almost exactly like you have here. I was wondering how wide your stiles were without the shoe molding please? Just looking at it, seems to be about 5 inches? Also what is the overall height floor to rail please? Thank you! Loving the rest of your site!

  11. Hi Brian, the moulding is from Menards, a store like Home Depot, and is 11/16 inch x 1-3/8 inch pine base cap moulding that comes in 8 foot lengths. Available in Pine or Oak.

  12. Hi there,

    Can you please share what type of moulding you used for the miter cuts?

  13. Well thank you so very, very much Chrissy. The color of the walls are even more beautiful in person and is kind of dreamy. I will be painting the bow window white soon too believe it or not.

  14. Christine says:

    So beautiful! You guys did a fantastic job. Love the color of the walls too. Thank you for this tutorial Sue. I look forward to all your future projects.

  15. Hi Sue, Just to let you know your comment on my post came as a no-reply blogger . That happens to me every couple of weeks…. Have wonderful afternoon.

  16. Just saw your blue bunny table and everyone needs to hop over there to enjoy it!

  17. Happy Easter to you too! Can’t wait to come see the bunny table. Thank you for the compliments Candy, it means a lot to us. I’m happy to hear the photos are of good use for you as it is hard explaining as well I’d like. I hope you’ll share your room with us when it is done or it can be featured here for sure if you don’t share it on your page.

  18. Sue, The wainscoting came out beautifully! Hubby did a phenomenal job on cutting and installing the panels. The white paint against the blue is lovely. Bravo lady, I hope you take a bow for a job well done! I really want to thank you for all of the detailed how to pictures that I can use for reference when I start my project. Thank you so much….. Candy

    PS: Happy Easter!

  19. Since you’re a design expert Jenny Lynn, I am honored you think it is amazing. I can’t wait to tell him about your comparison to Norm Abram- you rock!

  20. Thank you Suzie! We plan to do the hallway sort of like this too. It all takes too long and I am impatient and want it done yesterday.

  21. Thanks Crystal especially since you do so many videos. I can’t wait until the door is done.

  22. He reminds me of Norm Abram from This Old House. It looks amazing.

  23. This is remarkable!! He did an amazing job. I love the videos too!

  24. Lovely just plain lovely! When I own a house again someday I would want it that way!

  25. Thank you Cyndi, we are loving it. We could get a steel door for a song, but he wants fiberglass. The door project is exciting, but makes me nervous as one wrong cut and we don’t have a door.

  26. Thank you for such a rave reviews Carolann. Tim is now your biggest fan and appreciates your comments.

  27. Now that’s a transformation! What a great job your hubby did! As I said before, he needs to go into business he will have endless work! I just love the thing! Awesome vids too!

  28. Sue, it looks great! I like your money saving idea for the door too – it’s amazing how pricey front doors can get!
