The Dark Hallway Is No More!

You may remember seeing our dark hallway leading to the garage...

Now we are finally finished!

Please note there are five regular doors (all with trim, of course), one window, and two bi-fold doors.  Don't forget all the crown molding, either.

I used the same "Designer White" Clark + Kensington paint from Ace Hardware we've used on the built-ins in the den and vanity in the master bedroom after priming with Kilz 2 Latex Primer.  Anywhere large enough to use a roller, I used a foam roller like this one...

... and a brush for the smaller nooks and crannies.

The finished product is so much brighter and less '70s-ish.

Before & after...

Yes, yes. Much better.

Happy painting!
