I'm in a painting mood....and though I'm done painting indoors until fall -- unless this cruddy weather keeps up.

So....here's what I'm thinking...



I've seen it done, and like it....
                                                  before                                   after

 "Do one thing every day that scares you." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Anyone care to weigh in on this idea?


  1. Once you paint it ... no more cottage look :\

  2. I can't tell are you white washing it or going for full white coverage?

  3. I think I would like it more in your porch room out back. I like the wood inside. I wonder if you could do the part under the new counter the same color as the kitchen cabinets? Hard to picture without being there and I was wondering the same thing as Emily.

    I like the unpainted wood. But you are definitely more adept at decorating than I!

  5. All....it would be a solid creamy white...with a gray tint....the program I used didn't cover the knotty pine very well.

    Jen...I am actually considering doing the sun porch first!

  6. do the sunroom only. that would look good. i like the wood in the great room though. ;-)

  7. I agree with Kirk, the wood definitely gives it the cottage look! Keep it the way it is :)

    I like it white!!! I think it looks great in the before and after picture of the other room!! Of course I've never actually been to your house to see it in person but based on your pictures I like the white!!! Looks very crisp and clean!!

  9. I wouldn't paint it...Kirk is right, it would take away the cottage look. Of course you know I like the pine look and would have it in every room of our addition.
