But first, let's look back at what the dining room looked like when we bought the house.

Matt and I have a great system worked out for installing trim. Matt measures and cuts, I paint the cut pieces, Matt puts them on the wall, I fill the nail holes, caulk and touch up the paint. Here's an example of why caulk is our bff:
It looks pretty awesome, right? But wait, there's more! After taking these photos I realized that the dining room really wouldn't be complete without the curtains, so I convinced Matt to help me hang them. I need him for these sorts of things because I tend to want things done fast, but Matt takes the time to measure twice and make sure that everything is being done properly.
