This was the before fireplace and window area.
We added window wainscoting
and painted the fireplace.
First Lewis traced the bottom of the
fireplace onto a box so he could cut a
piece of plywood to go on top of the brick.
Then added plywood pieces on each
side of the front of the bricks.
Ripped out baseboards and trim under window.
Started adding trim to the top
and bottom part of the wood
Pre Painting the trim
Then trim was added up to the
ceiling and down to the floor
Then used picture trim on the inside
of the trim to make a box wainscot look
Painted and the trim and bricks white
Added small crown molding on the top
of the window trim to match the fireplace
All finished total wood cost was $120
plus $20 in paint and $20 in liquid nails.
