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…
and make it look like this…
is nothing short of miraculous in my book.
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.
And one more semi-closeup. This is one of the walls that I caulked.
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!
