    actually, that paint was 6 months old... LOL... the previous owners painted it that color on purpose... :)

    And 75% chance its a girl. Couldn't tell for sure. But we are headin to the doctors office in about 20 minutes for another ultrasound... They just want to check things out and make sure everything is okay... And see if the kid feels like showing anything today... :)

    I kinda want a boy... Just for the "I'm gonna need a shotgun" factor if i have a girl... But i'll be happy either way.

    Congrats man and nice looking remodel job. The chair rail really adds more depth to the room.

    Well maybe if he's lucky i'll put a mattress in.. :p :p

    And I NEVER realized how difficult it is to cut chair rail perfectly... Eventually I need to go and smooth the corners and touch them up, but its good enough for now.

    After a while it becomes stupid easy, it just takes some serious practice with a skill saw.

    Your coping needs some work, I see spaces ;)

    Looks good though :)

    Thats what Spackle is for... :)

    The room also had 1/4 molding vertically at every corner... Not what I would do, but I wasn't about to tear it down and risk having even worse gaps.

    So in order to get the chair rail in, i used a chisel to notch a gap for the chair rail, as opposed to trying to cut the chair rail at the right angle to 90 degree it, then try to do a 90 degree bevel on the backside of it, and match it perfectly.

    Eventually this room will get stripped, rocked, and redone, along with new windows when I'm ready to replace the wood siding on the house with Vinyl.
