Wheelie Wednesday - Choosing Trim Paint

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!Mom is moving along on this guest bedroom project and it's time to choose a color to paint the window trim and the baseboards! Seeing as our house was built in 1824, we need to go with a historical color! Hummmmm, I'm having a very hard time deciding! My first instinct is to go with blue because it's sure a restful color! But then again, we already have lots of blue trim in our house! Maybe we should go with something totally different! What do you all think?

And then there's a question of a wall stencil! Should we or shouldn't we stencil on the walls? This is the stencil on the walls in our kitchen. Too leafy for a bedroom, I think!

And this is the hydrangea stencil in our downstairs bathroom! The whole bathroom is a hydrangea theme! Naaaaa, too flowery and large, I think!

Did you notice my new red knit cap? Mom made it for me!

This is the stencil in the small hallway that goes into the computer room! This one could be a possibility!Maggie and Mitch suggested an Airedale stencil - little Airedales running around the entire ceiling! I think that would be a bit much, don't you?

I'll keep thinking and planning!

See you all next Wednesday!

Love, Autumn

We love your new hat Autumn, and we think airedale stencils would be charming (particularly if every third one had a red hat!)

Moco said...

That is a lovely hat, but don't you need one with ear flaps in your cold climate?
We vote for the airedales on the ceiling. Who wouldn't want to wake up and see dogs bounding overhead.

Hi Autumn,
You reckon orange will be a nice color? :)
I think all the stencils are really pretty... BUT... I still think Maggie and Mitch's Airdale stencil is a great idea!

Moose said...

Hey M & M! I found you on the true colors blog and could not resist commenting b/c I am in the midst of picking paint colors and even included it in this week's meme! good luck with choosing a color. Nice stenciling btw... I am concentrating on trying to paint in a straight line and can't imagine the mess I would make with a stencil ;-)

Airedales running around the ceiling would be cool.
