I completed my dining room wall treatment all by myself. This included adding two coats of paint, the gold paint pen diamonds, upholstery nail heads, chair rail and shadow box molding! And to top it off - the ceiling is over 11 feet high in this room! (I included more of the details involved in this room here and here.) This was actually the first time I stood on a ladder taller than a 3-step step ladder. This room was a LOT of work and I still have some finishing touches to put into it, but it gives me a great sense of accomplishment and pride to know that I was able to do it all by myself.

I am participating in Shanty2Chic's first ever link party 'I Made it Without my Hubby'!

You are right....when you do a project by yourself it is so rewarding everytime you pass by it!!!! Especially when it was a pain in the toosh! Thanks so much for linking up with us tonight! ~Ashley
