While I was painting, my significant other was scaping loose paint off the base shoe. The carpeting had beaten up on them and they needed some TLC. This is a "before" picture.

Beginning to paint the dining room. Yes, we made sure to protect the buffet at all costs!

A good view of the test spots in the living room and dining room. We spent over $30 on the cute 2 oz paint samples and found them to be invaluable in selecting colors. We went with the first choice in almost every room. However, we went through 3 samples in the sunroom.

Peeling the tape from the freshly painted living room. We learned (the hard way) to peel the tape off while the paint was still wet.

The heavy curtain rods in the sunroom did a number on the plaster. After patching this hole, we have yet to attempt to put up new curtain rods.

We were able to purchase trim paint identical to the paint previously used on the trim. This allowed us to just touch up the base instead of painting all the trim, especially since the rest of the trim was in great shape.

A picture of the scraped base ready for painting. Doesn't the SO do good work?

A picture of the painted base. This paint took forever to dry, and remained quite shiny for days. It did eventually dry to an acceptable semi gloss.
