Because we don't really have a big foyer, our front entrance needs a big wow factor. Chris and I figured that picture molding would be a good way to make a big impact in a small space.
I started by painting the ceiling and the walls the same color as the trim we're using throughout the house. (Custom color matched to our windows, cut with 25% pure white). The ceiling got flat and the walls got an eggshell finish.measurements. He affixed double sided tape to the back side of the frames to help him position them on the wall before nailing them in place.
I came home to THIS!
Chris said he really struggled with the triangles along the staircase. I'm kinda glad I wasn't around for that...
All that is left of this project is to paint out the trim and spindles as well as stain the stairs.
