progress report- dining room

The board and batten in the dining room is finished.  FINISHED!!  Let me tell ya, that crap was not easy.  The internet makes everything look so simple.   Its not even so much the difficulty level as the pain in the assness of it all.  (that is a word).
There was a lot of painting, a lot of caulking, a lot of sanding, and a lot of shimming.  But in the end it looks better than expected.


Here is the before pic...
