Are you wanting to change your look in a room, but stained molding is stopping/preventing you from getting the fresh, clean and updated look you are yearning for? I have another solution. No, I am not talking about gorgeous historical or custom made trim work like this:
I am talking about the too small and thin stained molding that looks like eyeliner on the top and bottom of your wall:
A solution? Paint the trim the same color as the wall! Wouldn’t it be great to only have to select ONE paint color for painting the walls, the trim and the doors the same color! Genius. Think of all the time you will save taping edges!
Here are a few examples of how beautiful it will look painting the room all in one color:
Use the same color for the walls, the top and bottom trim and doors inside the room if you are looking to ‘disguise’ the existing molding and trim. I suggest using an eggshell finish, but you can go glossy or whichever finish you like:
It looks very restful, doesn’t it? I suggest only doing one room at a time so you do not become overwhelmed. Close the door and see what you have to paint. No window or door trim to mask.
So simple and so gorgeous!
Here they used the same color, but painted the walls in a flat finish and trim in a semi-gloss:
Seriously, don’t you think it is a great idea? One color. Of course it will match with the rest of your home’s molding so you do not have to worry about coordinating or contrasting or matching, etc. etc. This way you can do one room at a time. I hope these photos how shown you how beautiful the room can be painted all in the same color. So, If you are discouraged because you feel your trim is not working with your dream look of a room, give it a try!
Have a great weekend everyone!
