Last Monday we found out we're having another boy:
I had already decided to paint the walls of the nursery Olympic Paint's Lettuce Alone and had gotten three solid coats on before we headed to the ultrasound appointment (then straight out on vacation after that) so I had a whole week away to contemplate how to finish off the room for our little boy.
Ultimately I decided to keep it simple with the already acquired white furniture then accents of blue and red but here's where my indecision is getting to me . . .
To paint the wood trim and doors or not to.
Do you have thoughts on this? Of course, you haven't seen the room and I'm hiding it from you for now but I can tell you this, we have hardwood floors and small baseboards stained to match those hardwoods. The doors are very basic hollow 1960s stained wood doors with absolutely no architectural interest at all. Neither the baseboards nor the doors are in great shape BUT no other trim throughout the house is painted, everything is stained. I did paint the trim around the window because it was in terrible shape and I love the white. So what do you think . . . paint the baseboards and doors or leave well enough alone?
UPDATE: Here's a current picture as well as a digitally altered version with the white trim:
