I was at my neighbors log home yesterday, and she was asking me questions about painting the interior logs to lighten and brighten the area.
Of course I said yes, I'd paint them in a heartbeat.
Check out these photos of painted logs, then picture them left really dark wood.
There really is no comparison in my mind!
First two photos from here.
These two rooms below would be so dark and almost dated in my opinion if it weren't for the white paint. Photos from here.
How cozy is this?
This log bedroom is absolutely dreamy.
How bright and cheerful is this entryway?
It looks so updated with white paint!
Even a whitewashed look is great!
Now let's talk paint colors.
Here are a few of my favorite whites:
My new favorite white to work with is Sherwin Williams Alabaster:
One white that I go to over and over again is Benjamin Moore White Dove:
And I also love Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore:
All this talk on white has me wanting to paint something!
