I always like to start with a floor plan. (Does anyone else do that, too?)

And the faithful bucket with a rag soaking in hot soapy water and vinegar to wipe down all the antique window trim and base boards. (But I would never paint over them :)

Dad painted the ceiling and trim “Snowbound” white – it’s like a breath of fresh air and looks so clean!

And here’s that beautiful Sherwin Williams’ “Crisp Linen” slowly concealing all the old yucky stuff.

I was able to sit on top of the ladder and paint right up to the ceiling trim.

Freshly painted walls . . .  ::sighs:: . . . beautiful!
