Project: No More BLAHSVILLE!!!

I have a really snazzy word for anything that really doesn't work for me...it is BLAH. Would you like to see an example?  Meet our foyer/stairwell...
In case you were wondering, this color is called...drum roll please...OFF WHITE!!!  No, really.  I found the paint can somewhere in the garage and it is literally titled Off White.  As you might have guessed, I am a huge fan of color,and this is absolutely NOT working for me!I did try to keep my color fairly neutral, and I went with a taupey-beige color called Cork Wedge from Sherwin Williams.I just really wanted to warm up these walls.  There is something special about spicing up the walls--it suddenly makes a house feel more like a home.:)

Here are a couple of pictures of the process...

As you can see, it isn't a WOW color, but it definitely is a change.  I am hoping to finish what I can do by myself today, and then snag my mom's help (at her convenience) to finish the tip-tops of the walls.  I am a little nervous on a ladder, so I try to rope in help for that when I can.

Has there been a painting project you've avoided lately?  Sieze the day and paint those walls!  It is so worth it!!!
