After 15 months of work, the first room was ready for some color. We are going with Arts & Crafts colors since the style of the interior has mostly these influences to it's design. I'm putting one coat on for now just to protect the walls and give us some much needed inspiration to keep going. Once the trim, floors, etc., are finished I will put on a final coat. You can see the results of stripping what woodwork still existed in the house and am very pleased so far, just curious as to why somebody would tear it out to put in plastic corner strips instead????
