What to do with these beams
Should I box them & then paint them or should I prime them with two coats of BINS, cracks filled, & then semi-gloss or satin them?
I think the latter would look really good, better than boxing them- am I crazy for thinking this?
The house is being prepared for sale (so price is a concern) and I am fighting a family member who thinks the house is much more than a dated house from the 80's and that the beams should be cherished & the trim should be left as well. Being a realtor & knowing buyers like light & bright & new, I'm with feng shui on this, so the dark beams are definitely getting dealt with one way or the other.
It's a 4/1.5 Colonial, 1700 sqft.
