The truth is, painted trim could always get stripped so the wood is back to its natural state.
My husband is open to the idea of painting the trim. It seems that people in the city where I live are attached to natural wood trim.
This picture gives a good shot of the house's trim, but with the old paint color. I've since painted the living room with Comfort Gray.
I decided to take a look at a few houses that show the natural wood before as well as the painted trim after. This might help me with the visualization process.

This house uses a combination of natural wood features and painted trim.
I think every house that I've shown looks better with the white trim. What do you think? I'd love your opinions!! Nicole
