When we moved into our farmhouse over 5 years ago the trim in our home was a kaleidoscope of colors.  The moldings, fireplaces, trim and doors were painted a variety of sage green, mustard yellow, taupe, grey, colonial blue and red.  Yikes!  Over time, we repainted all of the trim in our home white except… the family room.

Here’s 2 pics from our family room showing the red trim just a few short years ago…

That is because it took me 2 days and 3 coats of paint to finish the sliding, 6 panel and french doors.  But I was too excited not to share our progress so far and I have put my paint brush down for now.  It may be white yet!

We also changed out our pellet stove for a wood stove that is much prettier in my opinion.

  1. The white paint looks amazing. While your family room window is beautiful, it does need to be painted also. I love your tile/stone floors in that room. How fortunate you are to have something so unique.
