Adding Color and and a lot of Elbow Grease can make a huge difference
I just finished this job, and I am very proud of the work that I did. This foyer had not been painted since 1988, and needed a ton of work. It took over a week to fix the cracks, sand, wash and all the other work necessary before I began to paint. I convinced the home owner (although it did not take much) to use the the color she chose for the trim on the crown molding. This would allow the crown molding to be more prominent. She was very happy with the results. The wall paint was still wet when I took the "after" shots, and a new rug still needs to be put down, which explains the red padding on the stairs.
