The 2nd Bedroom

This door leads into the 2nd bedroom and the trim in the hallway is not done yet, as you can plainly see. I just wanted to show some progress here, though I feel like I've worked and worked and gotten nowhere.
I added a small piece of wood over the door where a transom window would have been. As I've said, the Houseworks door is taller and it leaves little room for a window.
The bay is removable and, while you can't tell from the inside, you sure can from the outside, but I think a decorative trim piece will fix that. We'll see later on down the line. I have only this piece of trim in the hall and will be finishing that up in the next few days. I'm on hold as Hobby Lobby ran out of baseboard and I need to wait for them to restock and they're not too quick about those things.
Give me a few days and I'll have more to show. There is MUCH to do in this hallway!!!

I love how it's growing into a "home". I always think it's the trim work that gives it the "real" look and that's one of the things that bogs me dowm the most. I have a huge pile waiting for the final finish, but I'll want to put the roof on before I do the crown moulding, since there are holes in the ceiling right now.

I'm very curious how your stained work goes...I plan on using some "printies", but still am procrastinating. I've done that a lot lately.
