My first before and after pics!
Here are the before and afters of the playroom paint job. The color we went with is an Ace Hardware color called "sugar dusted" color matched in BM Aura flat. Ceiling is swiss coffee in BM (Dunn Edwards color matched in BM ceiling white paint).
The new window shade isn't up yet, and I don't have baseboards, but I was too thrilled with the results to wait.
The chair rail was terrible -- the POs didn't even miter the corners, and it looks very out of place in our very 1960s house, so we took it down.
During (choosing a color):
It's hard to explain the color. During the day it looks like a warm glowing white -- very washed out; at night/in artificial light, it's a soft pink. The room is primarily a play room, but we set it up as a guest room when there is company.
