I finished the Wainscoting on the breakfast bar, and then also added a new coat of white paint completing my white kitchen.
All I have left is a chair rail and some Beadboard Wallpaper around the entire kitchen, new tile floors, and maybe a new cushion cover for my DIY Breakfast Nook cushions.
Okay, first things first. Kitchen Breakfast Bar Wainscoting:
Here is is in progress-
After coming up with my measurements, I went with 12" square boxes with 3" inbetween, I put up the fiberboard. I had to do cuts with that as well, and I just used a large handsaw. Put the Liquid Nails on the back, and then slapped it up. I used finishing nails in each corner and a few elsewhere on the board where it felt like it wasn't laying flat.
Here's the new shelf...thank you Hobby Lobby 50% off! It's covering up two old outlets, a telephone jack and a cable jack.
Then I added a sheer curtain over the sink:
And new Crushed Ombre curtains in the breakfast nook:
And here's the new textured border, unfinished. I just added a white wash coat to it to make the design pop and to lighten up the gray a little bit. I'll have finished pics soon :)
Next on the agenda: Add a chair rail and some beadborad wallpaper, finish the half bath, then either tiling the kitchen floor, or install wood floors! Whohoo!
