White Woodwork Wednesday……

My only New Year’s Resolution for 2010 was to select, buy and have installed new flooring for two-thirds of the house.  I started to do this a couple years ago and just gave up, I was overwhelmed by the choices….so many colors, so many styles, do we do all carpet, do we do laminate, I gave up! 

So, this year I decided I had to make it happen.  Again the CHOICES, not to even mention the cost!

Turns out choices might have been the easy part, ‘cause now we must, basically, move out of our house, have the carpet installed and move back in.  So, I started packing away all things breakable, emptying drawers and washing down walls………then it came to me…….misc 008 I had to paint the woodwork.

Ours is the typical ranch style house built in the ‘80s with dark cabinets and wood work.  Through the years, as I have painted a room, I have painted the woodwork white.

All rooms EXCEPT the hallway, of course, where there are five doors and a linen closet.  Now, at least, the trim around the doors and the linen closet are painted and I added some old glass knobs…..when the weather breaks we can take the doors outside to paint them……..Yeah! I made a resolution and kept it!

New Paint! Always makes me feel fresh and happy! Paint is to a house like lipstick to a middle aged women. Both make us look younger and less tired! I need to do some woodwork painting here too. Now I just might be motivated after seeing your clean white wood!
