Lightening Up the Walls

The trim in the hallway was a 3 day affair - and I'm still not done with it. It all needs touch ups in certain areas, and its all "stand on the top of the ladder" type work. I'll get there. The first picture shows you how the trim used to look - you know, ivory.

This next picture shows you White Dove by Benjamin Moore. Our trim color throughout the house. 

Anyone notice a difference? Let's get up close and personal with the crown molding. Pretty, right?

That last picture really makes you appreciate crisp white paint. Anyone check out the ceiling? That's got to be painted as well and I think the energy for that won't be found for about a year. I mean, blue ceiling people? Really? To think that the ceiling, walls, and carpet was blue just

Then, it was time for wall paint. Notice the subtle difference in the new vs. old color. The old color is in the green family and my new color is all grey. It's Moonshine by Benjamin Moore. 

Well then, this started happening. (Notice the door isn't painted yet.) Are you over the beauty of the staircase yet? Me neither. 

That wall with the stairs attached to it is gonna be a tricky little monster. All those angled cuts are going to send Josh into overdrive. More on the beadboard tomorrow! I can promise you, its looking some good.
