Yesterday was my second work day on John & Alice’s master bedroom. I finished installing all of the molding, and got about 1/3 of the caulking done.
I just have to ask…what in the world did people do before caulk was invented? Did they just live with those annoying gaps and cracks? Or was everyone a master craftsman?
Well, whatever the answer, let’s just say that I’m soooo incredibly thankful for caulk. Anything that can take this…
I didn’t fill the nail holes yet. I usually do those with wood filler (another miracle worker) so that they can be sanded super smooth. I can never seem to achieve that really smooth look with caulk. I tried using caulk on nail holes once on a project, and just ended up with little indentations everywhere. It wasn’t pretty.
So here’s the whole 360-degree view of the room as it looks now, clockwise starting with the main wall where the headboard will go.
I can’t wait to see this painted! I would love to think that I’ll get it finished today, but that might be wishful thinking. I first need to finish up the caulking, fill and sand the nail holes, and prime.
On another note, I’m thinking about painting all of the interior doors black. I haven’t talked to John and Alice about this yet, but I’ve been wanting to do this in someone’s house ever since I saw this home that was designed by Joni of Cote de Texas
Here are a few more interiors with black doors:

I absolutely love the look. What’s your opinion on black interior doors?
Alrighty…I must get to work. The wallpaper is supposed to be delivered Friday (along with another little something that I ordered, and I’m very excited about), so I need to get this board and batten finished up! Hope you have a great day!
