blue color schemes
The BEST whole-house paint scheme that looks great in every lighting. Daylight will bring out the colors - beautiful blue-green in rainwashed, periwinkle in solitude, pretty purple in swanky gray...and then interior lighting at nighttime will bring out the grey undertones to create beautiful, calming colors. This is the perfect paint palette. Sherwin Williams Paint Colors
Make your own trim—cheap! Cut any profile When a job calls for painted trim, I almost always cut costs with MDF. Even inexpensive wood, like this poplar baseboard, costs four times as much. To make trim, I cut MDF sheets into strips and shape the edges with a router or router table. With the right bit, I can create just about any trim profile, simple or fancy. Some home centres carry ready-made MDF trim for less than the price of solid wood.
