Dining Room Painting

…and Continuing with the Trim

This is what I woke up to this morning.

    Oh, I like it already, even though it is just a coat of primer, it looks so much fresher.

    I bet it’s gonna look great and I’m gawking at all of your white accessories. I have a thing for them now. Painting is a perfect Labor Day project.

    It looks so bright and cheery already!

    I spent the weekend shopping at IKEA for the millionth time. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of that place :)

    oh boy that’s a lot of trim! I recall painting trim at 7 or 8 months pregnant, I don’t recommend it! lol

    I spent my weekend having a fantastic 1st birthday party for our son!

    I’m blown away at the amount of comments you got for painting your trim, it’s like the debate stay at home mom or go to work mom right!! I’ve lived in old homes most of my life and have always painted the trim white and for the same reason you did, the idea of wood is great but the homes most of us live in doesn’t have flawless beautiful wood and over time it just looks old and dirty. The white trim looks great and really brightens the space up!

    it already looks “fresher” and cleaner somehow, looking forward to seeing the final outcome!

    Bon courage!

    It does look so much brighter. Can’t wait to compare before and after pics…I want to paint our trim and my husband doesn’t. I’m hoping this will help convince him.

    I would love to see a HOW TO post, as this is exactly what my husband and I are looking to do in our home. I love your statement about this being your home and not a time capsule!

    p.s. our wood trim is a total monet as well!!
