Another quick update on the living room progress. Very slow going, but forward movement nonetheless. Soon I’ll have no excuse to put off working on the ceiling beams…

Except for around the fireplace, the baseboard and chair rail are complete. Today, the first of the picture rail went up. The head casing over the two doorways will be a little challenging because they aren’t flush with the wall. Still ruminating on the best way to resolve that problem so it doesn’t look too trashy.

The plinth blocks, base cap, chair rail, picture rail, and egg-and-dart were purchased. I’ll buy the baseshoe as well one of these days. Everything else was milled, including the trim, sills, and ogee window stops.
