@frmboyinthecity we are nearing the end of our living room!!! I have all the wainscoting complete except going back the hall, hubs did my faux electric stove installation, I love it, our coal stove is in the lower level but its nice to take the chill out in the livingroom in the early morning before we stoke up the coal stove! He wanted to do the v pattern above the stove but I refused to let him do it! he wanted a mantel and I made him do a faux stove pipe instead. he thought I was nuts, but I love it and no mantel to dust! We still need to do the pallet molding around the top of the room but its been raining again so no ripping boards outside.
That looks awesome! I really like it. I need to work on mine some more. It has been crazy at my house the last 3-4 weeks, but I'm about half done with the one wall. Then I need to build a mantel for our upstairs fireplace, and redo the one in the basement. I love that pheasant against the pallet wood.
