The wainscot paneling is complete today. Hallelujah! It still needs a cap and shellac, but the difficult portion of this task is over. The landing window trim, the last of the picture rail, and a short section of hand rail also went up. It looks more like a room with each passing day.
It suddenly dawned on me that I have been at this for nearly a year come May 25th. It’s difficult to imagine… I started looking back at some of the photos that I took as I started. Oh, my… What a difference. There are still a couple of daunting tasks ahead of me, but I think, knock on wood, that the entry will be ready for graduation. Now, whether or not *I* will be is an entirely different matter.
