Painting the Living Room Trim with Benjamin Moore Advance Paint in Semi Gloss White
After reading some horror stories about Benjamin Moore Advance water-borne alkyd paint I went and double-checked all the trim I did. Most of the BM Advance trim is beautifully smooth (smoother and harder to the touch than Sherwin Williams Emerald that we used in the stairwell and office).

However, I did find that in spots here I didn't sand between coats (or possibly didn't let dry 16 hours between coats) that some white dust would come up when the trim was touched. I just sanded this down a bit until the white flecks stopped coming up. If I was really on the ball, I'd roll another coat on, but then waiting for the 30-day cure on horizontal surfaces would be a serious pain. So the tiny little living room built-in will just have to manage.

Note to self: Always let Banjamin Moore Advance dry 16 hours between coats, and sand in-between. And probably only use BM Advance in lighter colors.

(This is also to show off the fact that I've finally painted the door and some of the living room windows since the original report).

And now for some very boring photos of white trim in a barely off-white room.
