Looks like you are coming along great!
Thanks. It's def a learning experience.
It looks like you are a fast learner. I really like the Westfield design and the colors you picked. The work you did on this paid off.
It's mostly the electrical I'm struggling with. I've broken the foil tape twice because I was manhandling the whole house while wallpapering. Spliced the connections and had to re-wallpaper. Installing the sconces is a nightmare with those tiny wires and brads. Noticed one sconce isn't lighting up so I get to trouble shoot that tonight. Grrrr! Any tips on fixture installation would be appreciated.

I found that sometimes the protective cover on the tape wire coats the brad when you push the brad through the wire making the connection temperamental. I have found a trick that works for me. I make an indentation marking where I'm going to place the brad, then using an exacto knife I mark an X over the indentation, gently cut a small square only in the protective covering by joining the corners of the X, remove the tape covering exposing the tape wire. Then, I push the brad in half way, wrap the wire around the brad at least twice, then use needle nosed pliers to push the brad flush. Finally, I cover the wired brads with scotch tape. Since I started doing this I haven't had any problems with the wiring. I hope this helps!
