Wainscot can add a classy, visual element to entryways, dining rooms, even upstairs hallways — and it’s a great project for the weekend warrior.
For this style of wainscot, apply cut moulding to the wall with construction adhesive and small nails.
Set your mitre saw to cut 45-degree angles. Measure for the size of each wainscot “box” and start cutting.
Lay out each frame to make sure the corners match up neatly.
Mark wall where you want the frame, being careful to center it between the chair rail and baseboard. Attach with construction adhesive and small finish nails. Caulk thoroughly and finish off with a coat of white semi-gloss paint.
