Just saying "Hello!"

My name is Em and I found this site while researching challenging situations for wainscoting...eg., very narrow spaces between doorways and corners. I also just learned that it's pronounced wain "scotting" not "scoating" (as I have been calling it for the last 30 or so years). SO the day has already been productive and now I deserve a nap.

Grateful to all the helpers who are here to answer myriad questions!

Hi Em and welcome to the forum.
Post a new thread under best match forum for better exposure. Pictures always help us understand what you are looking at.

Ah, welcome @dustanddoghair! Mine could be Dirt&CatHair . . .

And, a gold star for putting your location in your signature. I'm in California now, but used to be almost a neighbor in Ohio, on the shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland.

Are you old enough to remember the big storms of 1977 - 1979?

FWIW, I call it wainscOting (coAting) also...and probably wont stop.

The single "t" (as opposed to double...tt) makes the o (what we were taught to call) a long O sound...Ohhhh. :)

Anyhow, welcome aboard.
