The shared nursery/bedroom is coming together and luckily the One Room Challenge has been extended by one week so that should be enough time to finish installing all of the Metrie trim.
I’m using the garage as my workshop and borrowing my friend Kate’s mitre saw to cut the pieces there. Then, I bring the cut trim up to the bedroom to double check measurements and install it using basic hand tools like I did in my previous moulding tutorial.
I have a sketchbook where I planned the trim and I also use it to keep track of the lengths I need to cut.Removing and replacing window and door casings is new for me and so far it’s going well. Above is how the window looked after I ripped off the old casing. I pried it off with a screwdriver and then pulled out the nails with a hammer. Where there was a build-up of paint from before, I used a chisel to carefully create a smooth surface.
Here is the new Pretty Simple Casing up around the window. Combined with the 5 1/4″ wide Pretty Simple Baseboards, the room is already looking better.
This side of the room has two doors that I’m still working to remove the old casings from. In the meantime, I have started putting the Solid Pine Lattice up on the top edge of the room.
Once the lattice was up around the top and the baseboards were in, putting up the vertical lattice went quickly.
While I was working in the room these two were napping in the hallway …
That’s it for this week. My sister is here visiting for a few more days which will help me get the rest of this finished in time for the final reveal at the end of next week.

…and your baby is how old? 😜
It’s looking great, but when do you sleep?
You know that I don’t do any of this kind of work at night!
Cannot believe you’re managing this with a newborn. Great job Robyn!
Thanks for the encouragement Lisa…just made it before the link up closed. I hope you’re enjoying your ‘new’ bedroom!
Lovely makeover of the room… Congratulations on having baby…
