Happy “Pin Away Wednesays!” Today I am sharing highlights from my Dark Woodwork and Stained Trim Pinterest board. Five years ago we moved from our 1930’s cottage with all white trim and woodwork, to our current 1920’s home with original. unpainted woodwork. When we originally bought our home we had planned to paint the stained woodwork white, but after a few days we just couldn’t bring ourselves to do it since it had never been painted. Now after five years the woodwork is my favorite aspect of our home as it gives it such warmth and character.
At first I struggled with decorating our home because I had never had dark woodwork before. It took some time to find the right colors for the wall, decor and furnishings. The original woodwork was a bit orangey, so we darkened it to a richer espresso brown using General Finishes Java Gel Stain. (affiliate link). In the end we chose a creamy off-white wall color and neutral decor and I love how it looks with our woodwork.
As soon as we decided not to paint the trim, I created my woodwork Pinterest board for inspiration. Here are some of my favorite images from the board featuring various tones of unpainted and stained woodwork, trim and moldings. Pin away!
Inspiring Rooms With Unpainted Woodwork
I hope you have enjoyed seeing these photos of dark woodwork and stained trim. White woodwork and trim continues to be the most popular, but over the last few years stained woodwork has definitely been trending. For more inspiration take a look at my post, Original Unpainted Woodwork and Stained Trim. I still love white woodwork, but I am certainly glad we didn’t paint ours!
What is your opinion of stained woodwork? I love hearing from you dear readers!
Thanks for visiting today!
