White Trim + Black Door = Happiness

This summer I spent most of my free time painting, painting, and painting some more. I have to say all the work was worth it.  Out of all the projects I have done to this house none have made as big of difference as painting the trim white.  It has brightened up the whole house.

I have always wanted white trim, but the task seemed daunting.  This summer I summoned up all my courage and put the paint brush to the wood. The result is so worth it!  The pictures don't do it justice.  The difference the white trim has made in my home is amazing.

This was one of those projects that I just started in on and did not even think to take any before pictures, so here is a picture from last Christmas that shows the banister and front door before the white paint.

One last picture of the WHITE banister.

I still have a bit more trim to paint before all the trim upstairs is white, but it will happen.

Thanks for stopping by and happy painting!
