Trim And Flooring Update....

Painting trim sucks.  I can't wait to be finished.  I am  To take a break from painting trim, I decided to tackle a few more projects around the house:

Here is a before picture of our fireplace mantel.  It was stained to match all of our maple trim which will now be white.

Here is an after picture of the mantel.  I stripped and stained it with Minwax Dark Walnut.

For the trim, I am using Sherwin Williams "Extra White" mixed in their paint for doors and trim.  I have been using a latex  Zinsser Primer.

I also painted the inside of the front door the same color as the outside of the door:  Benjamin Moore "Stratton Blue".

The only part of the painting I had to hire out was the window in our 2-story foyer.  I made it as far as taping off the bottom of the window before I chickened out : )

Here is a sneak peak of the slate floor we put down last weekend in our mudroom/ first floor bathroom.  I am currently in the process of painting all of the new taller baseboards : )

And, finally, here is the kid's bathroom vanity finished.  I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Duck Egg".
