White Wonderland: Home Update

Last week the house was prepped for major painting. Tons of papering the floor, ceiling, windows and doors. This past weekend all the wood work was primed...not the finished glossy white that'll be, but covered up the ugly carmeled wood work for a bright white! It's beginning to look a lot like...a white winter wonderland in here:

Before, Paper and prepped:

Currently, Snowy white with prime (living room & dining room):

Primed and the addition of wainscoting panels to the Dining Room:
Light and Bright:

I'm already loving the lighter wood trim! It makes the house so bright and big looking!
Next step: finishing the wood prep (filling nail wholes), and then wall paints!

Lots of paint fumes going on in my home this week...


  1. Love it! It's coming along so beautifully!

  2. I love the light trim...it looks so bright and airy!

  3. Looks so much brighter already! Are you doing the work yourself?

  4. After finally getting through some wallpaper and other misc projects, we resorted to hiring someone that has worked on a lot of my family's homes.

    This way it is getting done during the day when we're at work. He is doing the main part of our house, and we will start the bedrooms our selves once he is complete!

    This gives us a good head start!

  5. Yes, the white trim will look fantastic! That's awesome that you were able to hire someone to help you.

  6. i think the white will look awesome!!
