If you follow me on Instagram than you may have seen that I am currently painting the trim in our sunroom. It’s my first DIY project in our new farmhouse & I’m so excited! I was so excited that I didn’t even move any furniture before I got started. I will be moving the furniture tomorrow & hopefully finishing up the trim this weekend. I decided to use the new Joanna Gaines paint line, Magnolia Home, cabinet & furniture paint in true white. It’s been going really well so far & it has amazing coverage which I’m happy with. I’m hoping it holds up & looks great after two coats, more on that later when I’m done. We just moved in the house less than a week ago, & our life is still in boxes except for this room because we sit in here the most, but you know I had to get some paint out or I would go crazy. Here is what the room looked like before…
Honestly the original trim was not bad at all & would work with so many people’s decor, but we have a different vision for this farmhouse of ours, & part of that is painting the trim a fresh bright white. Here is what it looks like with the first layer on part of the room & taped off before I move the furniture tomorrow..
Ahhh the power of paint. Not even done yet & it’s still such a huge difference. I really think this trim will only need two layers with the magnolia paint which is amazing because I’m kind of lazy when it comes to painting & trim isn’t the most fun thing to paint. I love that the painted trim adds a blank slate for the beauty that is going on outside. It makes that red barn of ours pop & I’m not mad about it. I will be back when the trim in all painted here in the sunroom with a full review of the cabinet & furniture paint by kilz on our trim, & full before & after photos. I hope you all like the progress of our trim paint in this room so far because personally I’m loving it.
