Greenleaf Day 17 - painting walls

Not much progress was made today, due to me making a card and spending time at home doing work for work. Gosh, I wish I could have a cat at work to curl up on my lap. A purring Tigger while working is much more pleasant than overhearing half of a phone conversation from the next cubicle. :-)

I did put some paint on the interior walls today. I was going to put some trim around top of the walls where it meets the ceiling, but I decided to try to be careful with the paint instead, and have the ceiling and walls meet without using molding to cover the transition. It is easier to make the corners look good when the walls are the same color as the ceiling, but I am painting the walls vanilla, and the ceiling is white.

I am thinking about trim color. Should they be painted with vanilla, with white, or stained wood? I think that the cabinet in the corner will be stained wood, but I am still thinking about it. I can make the countertop a different color. There are so many decisions to make!

Today's favorite tool: foam paintbrush

It's funny how deciding colors and elements for my bookshop creates more angst and anticipation in me than a real room has ever caused :)

I think either white or stained. Vanilla would blend into the wall too much.
