Along with painting the walls, we prepped the front door and molding for a fresh coat of crisp white paint:
and since we do not get very much light in our house, white was definitely the way to go in other cases as well. So the stairwell railing also began to get a fresh coat.
Pay no attention to the pink kitchen gloves. They really came in handy protecting my hands and nails! Don't these after photos just look amazing?
