Here is where we started:
Step #1: Install the top rail! (the right side will eventually meet up with my fireplace mantle and surround)
Step #2: Install boxes made from 1" trim (we did this step twice when we realized our floor was not level and we had measured off the floor... ALWAYS use a level, it will save you in the long run)
Step #3: Prime all of the area that you are going to paint!!
And here is the final product! (sorry about the lighting... it was still dark out this morning when I took the pics!)
I am linking this up to the following parties :
