Never in my life did I imagine that I would be married, own a home, and spend a fair amount of time smiling like a fool at my baseboards.
We have finally been painting the main areas of the house. Its a long slow process but it looks SO GOOD!
It's a hard thing to translate to pictures.
This is a good indication of the three colors in our main great room area right now.
Far left is the beigey off white that was on every single surface of the house when we got it. We are painting all the doors and trim bright white.
The middle trim color is the bright white (Glidden off-the-shelf base 2, I believe).
The far right color is Olympic's Thin Ice. It is a super-duper light gray-blue. Very neutral and just enough to make the white really pop.
So as of now the house is kind of mis-matched.
All the baseboards and door trim (less a small area behind the turtle tank) are bright white.
Half of the walls in the room are Thin Ice.
3 out of 6 doors are bright white.
The mis-match drive me nuts, but hey, what can I do? Gotta work all day to pay for paint, ya know.

That's how we roll around these parts, we break down a giant project into annoying half-done little bits. How about you?
Lets hope downstairs is done by Spring!
