The wall between the kitchen and the dining room allows for looking into the kitchen from the living and dining rooms but is tall enough to (hopefully) to hide any mess on the kitchen countertops.
Even though this wall is much taller than knee height — 48 inches — it needed to have some kind of topper to finish it off.
At first our contractor bought a long piece of one inch lumber to cap the wall but I asked for something a little beefier.
He came up with a thicker piece of lumber which needed a little “something” to give it a finished look. I had a choice of 3 different routed edges.
Charlie and I like the most detailed one best which is also the one our contractor preferred.
He routed the edges after the board was installed.
I still have to either paint or stain the board.
It has been pre-primed but I’m sure I could sand that off if we preferred a stained finish.
Would you stain or paint?
