I love, love, love white woodwork. I know I went back-and-forth on whether to paint my woodwork at the old house, but when we moved into this one, it was a no brainer for the bedrooms at least. They were in horrible condition and the timing was excellent for painting them. We had plans to replace the carpet. We had plans to paint the walls. So we removed the carpet and just painted the woodwork.
We could be as messy as we wanted! Because the subfloors were about to be re-covered and since we hadn’t painted the walls yet, we didn’t have to tape off anything! Not a single thing. It could NOT have been easier.
It took 3 coats and it looks great! I have some touch-ups to do after some not-so-careful movers and carpet layers, but that’s minor. I’m so happy I went with this.
I was afraid of how the oak wood doors would look next to the white trim, but I don’t mind it a bit. And the doors are in fabulous condition, so I don’t want to replace them and I don’t even want to paint them. Again, I’m so happy I went with it!
