a mile of mullion

I washed the walls with my favorite non-bubbly detergent, Mr. Clean as per the directions from the internet. I love Mr. Clean. The yellow kind is the only kind that will do for this ole' girl. I guess I could tolerate the orange but anything else is gross. Anyway, so the walls smell fresh and clean. I started taping off the trim and the areas to be painted. After much debating and research. I decided to go with latex primer just because I did not want to deal with mineral spirits to clean up with kids around. The walls aren't too slick since they were last stained, oh about 42 years ago.

This is about how high the mullion trim will be. I am hoping the antique white paint we do above the line will add a very subtle and clean architectural interest. The nice thing about painting this room is that it is big enough to just pull the sofas away from the wall and work behind them.

Aren't we cute? We have matching scarves from Justice. Matchy, matchy!


  1. Awww, such pretty girls.

    And I CAN'T WAIT to see the finished product!

  2. If it looks terrible I blame it on the internet.
