here's a BEFORE:
i thought it had some interesting little angles on it, so worth a coat of paint. i choose CIL's "silver streak" and then realized it was too light. luckily i have an abundance of leftover paint from other projects in my furnace room. probably 4 or 5 shades of grey, 6 or 7 shades of white and around 6 shades of blue. so i added a little grey and a little benjamine moore - blue hydrangea to the "silver streak" and achieved what i call the perfect "french blue"
here's a "sneak peek" at the white floors as well! as you can see, no base yet or register covers!
updated pics below: baseboards on! very exciting!
happy painting to you all!
