The Project Tally

• Mapped out the wainscoting layout using design software Kelly already owned: $0

• Created wainscoting using 1×2s for the stiles, 1×3s and chair-rail molding for the top, and 1×8s for the baseboard. Added crown molding and casing for the passageway: $561

• Bought a chandelier on sale and installed it: $50

• Primed and painted the upper walls, wainscoting, trim, and ceiling: $222

Total: $833

Shown: The white wainscoting, trim, and vibrant wall paint add texture and personality to the room.
