Went back to the wainscoting for the back hallway tonight.

Finished cutting out all the pieces.

Stained them with walnut stain.

Started gluing them together…

…and decided the spacing between the slats was too wide. So ripped them off and started again with narrower spaces.

Placed the wainscoting piece in place to see what it would look like.

Then realized I hadn’t glued anything down in this hallway last fall, so I took all the pieces apart.

Painted two of the hallway walls a light buttermilk color.

Glued the side wall into place.

Glued the “tile” floor onto the pantry under the stairs.

Glued the back wall into place.

Glued in the little black door step between the “tiles” and the kitchen to cover the crack there.

Started gluing the floorboards onto the back hallway (pushing them all the way to the kitchen doorway, once again to cover the crack between the two, since these are two separate sections of the house).

Finished those and then glued the wainscoting onto the back wall.

Then I had to deal with the crack in the corner between the two walls.

Used wood filler to fix it up and then painted over it.

Then pulled this section of the house away from the kitchen section, just to make sure I hadn’t glued them together accidentally. The house itself will be in three different interlocking sections, otherwise it cannot be taken through doorways and would need to stay here forever.

Here it is separated and pushed back together again.

Then I needed to paint the third wall of the hallway.

Cut out pieces for the wainscoting for this wall.

Stained them and then glued them into place, using one of the slats as a spacer.

Also cut out and stained trim for the doorway into the kitchen. Had to cut out a couple notches so it would fit around the wainscoting.

Then I glued the little inner wall into place.

And glued the wainscoting and the door trim on.

Tomorrow I will paint and finish up this last side wall and doorway (simply laid in place for this photo)…

…as well as this wall in the middle of the staircase (also laid in place).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I also need to continue with the wainscoting up the staircase, the staircase needs lighting, and the pantry under the stairs needs shelves and a wine cellar.

But for now, I leave you with this image of the unfinished area.

Good night!
