Wainscoting for living room

Building a Reputation
Building a Reputation


Pine moulding used to create wainscoting on living room walls which were then painted. 



The project


With my father’s help, we measured out the length of the walls and how large the areas of wainscoting would need to be to sit well in the room. We cut the pieces of moulding with a mitre box to create the corners. The moulding was fixed with glue and secured with a nail gun before that section of the room was painted.




Step 1


Measure the length of the walls and work out the size of the panels required.



Step 2



Measure out the Pine moulding and cut lengths with a saw and mitre box. Attach to the wall with Liquid Nails and then fix with a nail gun.




Step 3


Paint the wall.

Hi @HarrietArthur,


It's great to see you're getting stuck into some finish carpentry, a particular favourite area of mine. Your wainscoting looks fantastic; it adds such a touch of elegance to your home.


I can tell you've put a lot of care and attention to detail into it, and it truly shows. Your home must feel even more inviting with such a beautiful addition.


I'm eager to see what other projects you have in store. Please keep us posted on your future endeavours.
