Updated half wall

Not long after we moved into our house, we decided to take on the weird wall that separated the kitchen and dining area. And by "we decided" I mean that we had discussed it and one day while I was at work, Ian sent me a picture of it halfway torn down! He was feeling motivated I guess! And I was SO excited! 

It was a long process of debating on making it a bar, replacing drywall, adding extra supports in the wall, putting a new top on it, painting, etc. In the end, we decided we didn't have enough room to make it a bar area. 

This is what it looked like up until a few days ago:

The top piece just didn't look finished o me since it was so thin in comparison to the chair rail and baseboard. So I decided to buy some trim and make it look more substantial. I still have to caulk and paint it, but you can't really tell that from the pictures so I decided to go ahead and post them:

Here are some before & after shots to compare:

I think it looks much better. What do you think?
