Because I haven't spent enough time around a paint brush, I decided to tackle the entry way last night. I have been avoiding this project, because it's not just the entry way that needs help – it's also the upstairs hallway and the downstairs landing.
My thought process is this – by doing the entry way, the hallway will look incomplete and that will annoy me enough to make me want to finish the hallway. As for the downstairs landing, I have no idea where that motivation will come from.
While I don't mind the beige the sellers used, I did mind their paint job. Aside from their fast one-coat paint job, when they did touch-ups before they moved – they bought paint with the wrong finish, so there a huge shiny paint streaks everywhere. There's at least 20 areas just going up the stairs.
I decided to paint the walls the same gray that's in the living room. I love the color. It's still soft and neutral, but the chair rail pops a little more with the new color.
Maybe someday I'll find the motivation to paint my doors white.
