paint help


What is the usual practice for painting a room that has wainscoting? Base and trim the same color as the wainscot, or different? And what about the doors? Match the trim?

I am painting a new mud room and want the wainscoting a darker color, maybe a green.

Comments/opinions are appreciated!

Yep! All trim, doors, and wainscoting same color. That's the traditional way (Boring). I like your idea. And its your house. You can paint whatever color you want to. Here's a good link. Click here

Good Luck!!!!!!!!
