Updating outdated dark wood trim in older house dating chat2me247 com
Try as I might, I didn’t think I could decorate around orange brick.So at about pm the other night, I got a hankering to white wash the brick.I posted about my idea on my Beneath My Heart facebook page, and I got a bunch of “Yeah! ” So full of courage, I mixed my wall color paint (SW Natural Choice) half and half with water.I actually used my glass measuring cup, added two cups of water and two cups of paint, then mixed them together. (Some people white wash with a lime and salt mixture, but not I.) Then I just painted the brick with the mixture.We used the Snowbound color on all the baseboards as well. I believe, the key to this successful project was in the prep work.We also switched out our hardware with these brushed nickel pieces. While the faces of our cabinets are wood, the insides (where our dishes live) are some form of manufactured wood.We were repainting the adjoining room anyway, so it became the workplace for spraying all the cabinet doors.This picture helps show the contrast of the Sherwin-Williams Light French Gray to the previous “warmer” color. I’m so pumped that I was able to create a completely new look and feel for my home just by painting it.
This meant that every individual cupboard had to be taped off to protect the inside.Winners will be selected via random draw, and will be notified by e-mail.
