Chair Rail (if not already on wall)
Nail Gun or hammer
Air compressor (if using nail gun)
Primer (if needed)
The room started like this..
We already had the chair rail in our front room, so that was one less step for us. You will have to install this otherwise.
Then my husband cut the trim to create a frame. Depending on how large (or small) you want your frames to be, figure this measurement out beforehand.
Map out where you'd like your frames to go, then apply them using liquid nails & a nail gun (or hammer them in yourself). And from what my husband told me, this little nail gun & air compressor saved him SO much time. Great investment, since I'm sure this won't be the last of our projects. :)
Fill in the nail holes with Spackle, then sand it down after it dries.
Place painters tape around the edges, so you only get paint where you want it. :)
Now paint! We didn't prime, because there was no need for us with our walls being so light.
After your paint is dry, remove your tape & admire your work.
And makes for a really nice change!
