Thanks Caroline! The stripper is some gnarly smelling stuff, the rest isn't too bad. The first layer (yellow) is just an eggshell latex, the faux is a clear acrylic glaze and I'm adding color to it. I've mixed 3 shades, going for a cherry color. I'm using my grandpa's woodshop while they are in FL for the winter, heated and major exhaust system :)
The plan is to get all the trim done over winter (I have 8 more rooms worth to do) and then in spring when I can open the house up we are going to refinish the hardwood floors in a cherry finish to match. I love my old farmhouse but I've got a giant list of projects!
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
