I am liking WHITE!!

We have been hard at it! Paining and papering in the bedroom. We started this redo back in the spring and I hope to be finished by the end of September. I have NEVER liked WHITE.....before!
I do now! I am embracing it actually! The trim above is not even nailed up yet but I was dying to see how it would look!! It is pretty white! I also painted both sides of the bedroom door. Need to do yet one more coat on them tomorrow. Then?? not sure. I may add some molding interest or something. It is such a BIG white reminds me of a blank canvas!

Everything I look at these days I think, "That would look better painted white!"
As in this frame. The white works!

And I have a GREAT idea for trimming around the ceiling!

Cover the trim with leftover pieces of wallpaper!

I think this will give a finished edge as well as a bit more dimension!

While we have made some HUGE progress we still have a long way to go!

This is above and to the right of the bathroom door. That crack is beyond what I can repair so it will a job for Louis Dean. The hole up there is an 'oops' from when LD was threading down the cable or wiring or something from the attic. He assured me, "I can FIX it!" And he will!

Then we have the rest of the north wall where the back door is.
That, too, is a 'Louis Dean' project!

BUT....we ARE making progress and I love the way the bedroom is shaping up!
I think WHITE is my new favorite color!!


  1. Beautiful job! I like color also but White trim is the color to go with.
    Your room is looking great.

  2. Everything is looking great, Linda. I love how you and Louis Dean work together! My hubby and I gave up on that years ago!


  3. nice, crisp and clean. I am so happy for you. I think you picked the perfect wallpaper for your personality. It is so YOU!

  4. It is going to be gorgeous. I love how you two work together. What a team!

  5. looking good...I like white too...

  6. I have been into colour for years...but a couple months ago I painted a room white...and LOVE it...yes white is THE colour...(I think...what goes around comes around?:)

  7. Looks great - you'll be done before you know it!

  8. I am loving white as well - sprayed white, gloss white, painted white, off white, creamy white. White trim makes the walls pop. White frames let the pictures be the centre. White can be sanded and stained with wax and rubbed the object takes on a new life. (maybe you have guessed I am learning to paint furniture and frames and anything else that gets in my path and having fun too.

  9. Sounds like a ton of work, but it is really looking wonderful. I love white trim and doors. I think they just ground and highlight any room. Hugs, Marty
