Ever since we moved into our Home Sweet Home, Josh and I have been planning on painting the 80's brown trim to update our casa. Well, let me rephrase that, I have been planning to paint it and finally got Josh on the bandwagon.
Well, as it turns out with most projects, it's definitely a big undertaking. Especially since our home is carpeted throughout. But, we are not people who shy away from a challenge! So, we've been tackling that ugly 80's trim one room at a time.
First, I started by taking a couple of days to focus on our bedroom. I taped off all the trim, using a flat spackling tool to wedge the tape under the trim so the carpet didn't get painted as well.
Our trim isn't in great shape, so I also had to use paintable caulk to seal off some of the cracks and dents.
It's definitely a time-consuming project, but so rewarding in the long run! The bedroom trim is 95% done (just needs another coat on the doors), and not the hallway trim is underway as well. I can't wait to share the final result with you!
I know this is one project that we won't regret putting time and effort into. Stirrup pants and big hair may be making a comeback, but I'm pretty sure this 80's trim is gone forever!
