Adding Some Wooden Details


I just received an order I placed long ago for some wooden appliqués for the headers on the windows in the house! It was a long, long process as I accidentally sent to the wrong address and they were returned, rerouted and then remailed….omg I had to pay a fortune to get them here, but I’m so relieved they arrived.
The large one is going on the fireplace and the others over the windows in the living room and dining room. All the casings and trims are now ready….we painstakingly raised the grain, applied a combination of stain and paint finish and a clear topcoat and they look sooooo incredible! The appliqués will get the same finish and blend right in…at least that’s the plan 🙂 Will post photos of the finished areas once they are done which should be in a few weeks.
