I love wide mouldings!

It's almost done!! The new baseboard trim is down in the livingroom and diningroom. Only the entry hall is left to do. Yay!! I painted, what I hope to be the last of the trim and baseboard yesterday. Installation finishes tomorrow!! Wahoozer doozer!!

I really don't mind painting trim and baseboard because I know how great it looks once it's done. Crisp white mouldings, they're timeless. For me, the wider (or taller) the better.

So, here you see all the livingroom furnishings piled into the middle of the room. It's a dark picture, I know. Those rooms are so light filled that it's hard to get a good photo....with or without the flash. Even with the shades down! Hey, I've tried.

Next is the before.....then the after. Now see, huge difference!! I love, love, love wide mouldings!!

Tonight we set up the Christmas tree so I can fluff the branches. Yes, it's just another hat I wear......Branch Fluffer. HA! Merry Merry!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Wow! What a difference.
Our mouldings are wide and white too. Welcome to the club. :)

Love yesterday's pinkness also.

I say even do a faux painting of them if you can't have the real.

The Christmas tree will be just in time for Thanksgiving and I'm sure the bears are behind this.

I'm still reminiscing on the darling pink tree in the teacup.

Wow, that is gorgeous Aleta, but then of course I did not think for a minute that I would not like something you thought of for your home...I love wide mouldings as well! I think they have this classic charm about them and of course I love classic charm!
