Easy there with the paint brush during this month of color. Sometimes a home's perfect color is revealed through the removal of paint instead of the application of more. Take, for example, this incredible transformation from painted woodwork to the exposed natural finish beneath. According to this survey, we think you might agree that it's stunning...

The owners of this 1912 bungalow stripped 18 layers of paint from a built-in china cabinet, wainscotting, and other architectural details to reveal the home's original woodwork in all its glory. A wall and ceiling paint color was selected to complement the newly-exposed woodwork. We think the results are unbelievable, lending a much richer, more solid feel to the home:
