I also thought all the detailed trim on the columns were busier than I wanted for my look.
At the bottom of the columns I removed the base pieces, but will put them back.
The top cap on the baseboard had to go, and so did the quarter-round on the floor.
I had 3/4" boards of MDF cut down to a manageable size that would fit into my car.
Then, I brought them over to my friend's home where her husband has a workshop in the garage. I ripped the boards down to my desired width for the paneling treatment.
At this point I called Joe...my favorite contractor. Fortunately, he was available. I thought I would have him do the crown molding and I could do the rest.
This is Joe
This is Mike, he works with Joe....he doesn't like me.
Apparently, I make him nervous because I question his decisions.
I love the simpler column and how the crown steps around it.

Hopefully Mary Ann will be able to locate the paint name.
That's enough of my drama for the week. I am working in real time and I'm not happy about it. I hope to be ready for paint by next Wednesday. I may need to keep Joe longer than expected...you know what that means..... over budget, already.
