There is thick heavy varnish, with a snakeskin texture, on almost all of it. And removing the border below the ceiling is not in my budget (plaster walls, plus it also the top of the window trim). So, do I paint or not? If I paint, any suggestions on how to deal with the texture of 100 years of varnish? If I don't paint, any suggestions on wall color to go with the trim but not make the whole place super dark Thanks in advance for any feedback you could offer! Editor: Lisa- If you love the look of white trim, then we say go for it and be happy. There are some excellent pointers on painting woodwork in Wes & Kayla's How To Paint Kitchen Cabinets Home Hack. Readers, do you have any advice for Lisa?
