Just a quick addition to the list. I did this today. Some of you might recognize this from the first project I posted. Iused cheap chair rail from home depot and just mitered it all around. You might also be able to figure out why I was complaining about my miter saw last week.

I agree with Dennis. The scaffolding looks like it’s constructed from toothpicks. Aside from that, the molding accents the wall nicely.

I’ve got a wall like that; have thought about doing some sort of t&g knotty pine, but this looks good too

The scaffold is quite stable. It is well braced and has legs extending out 5’ to the side. The only concern we had with it was when we were trying to paint the middle of the cieling and it was quite low on the scaffolding. It was kind of hard to get onto the platform from the ladder. In retrospect I should have made it about 18” shorter, but it still worked very well.

It is about to get torn down and turned into something else. Not sure just what but I will be glad to have the living room back. After that I have an entertainment center to build.
