How To Trim a Hallway

We are getting soooo close to having the hall completed. Here are a few more pictures of our progress. 
All that is left to do is fill in the holes and paint it 
"ALL WHITE" :)  

I am very much a D.I.Y kind of person when it comes to home renovations; however, when it comes to trim work I leave the painting to the experts. 
There is a HUGE difference between hand-painted trim and spray gun painted trim. I feel like the sprayed trim holds up a lot better on little fingers and everyday wear and tare. It also leaves a professional sheen that I LOVE soooo much!
When we were finishing or basement, "B" and I used a spray gun to spray the walls, trim and ceiling, but after that experience and basically being covered from head to toe in white paint, trying to figure out how to control the darn spray gun, leaving overly painted gobs of paint here and there, we decided we would leave the spraying to the experts!(hey, at least we tried...right! :)
I can still call myself a D.I.Yer and have someone else paint right?...right???

I have a VERY affordable painter if anyone is looking :)

Can't wait to have the hall painted and then post before and after pictures!! YAY!!

P.S. I am still working on the kitchen makeover!! Exciting things are also happening in there :)

  3. Hi, just found you. Your home is lovely and I am adoring the black doors. Can't wait to see more.

  4. Wow, that looks gorgeous, already!! Love it with the black doors!

  5. I just this same idea for the walls in this old house the september issue. You should let them know you did it first. I love your home and your ideas.

  6. Beautiful!! What type of spackle to you use to fill all your nail holes??? I have used drydex in the past and it seems to shrink and then you can see the holes when the wall is painted. Thanks
