Troy, I totally agree that it all depends on what you like. I love the way the room looks with the chair rail at the height it is and think it would be too low if you made it even with the window. Just my .02

Congrats on the new baby! Looks like your little one will have an amazing room when it's born. Please post pics of the completed project.

Thanks Kimberland. Cutting up some frames now. Hopefully they will be painted and on the walls this weekend.

Great pic!

Sometimes (usually) we just have to do what our budget and time-frame allow. And also what some previous work may just necessitate...especially when working on our own homes.

Obviously, whenever possible you want to it the "right" way, especially if you're starting from scratch. But if it's not anything dangerous (load bearing, etc.), you do what you can within your parameters, as a homeowner.

Even on almost all "paying" jobs/projects, compromises have to be made, whether it's material choices, scope of work etc.

I'm sure your kid is going to love all the work you've done.

Well said. The hardest part of the project was dealing with some of the things done by the builder. The spackler did not do such a great job and the walls go in and out about 1/4 inch by all the joints. I was about to rip out the sheet rock and start from scratch. As always my projects seem to grow as I go. Especially when people like Jay start putting more ideas in your head. Haha. Due to time and other things going on my wife went crazy when I started planning to rip out the rock. Cleaned the walls up the best I could and will have to use a little caulk on the mouldings.

This can be said for ANY home improvement project. My daughter started college 5 years ago and it's been a never-ending project at our house too.

Your boy is gorgeous. He must be brand new since you posted a few days ago that you were expecting (or did I just read it wrong?).

If you want a good laugh, get this book:
http://www.amazon.com/The-Baby-Owner...+owners+manual

Our boy's now five and my wife and I still joke about the hilarious ways that book explained some stuff. Like "don't overfeed your unit" and "programming sleep mode".

Beautiful room, great job! I'm envious of the picture frame molding...I'd love to do it in our house but we have plaster walls so it's just not gonna happen. I just have to live vicariously though these posts.
