What a great project ChefG!

Expect this project to take approximately two gallons for two coats.

Colors that brighten large spaces with very little natural light are going to be Off-whites and Neutrals.

I would start by freshening the trim, doors, and windows with a fresh coat of bright white semi-gloss.

This will provide a very white base that will contrast with fairly light wall colors.

Next, consider colors similar to Cottage White #1813.

A flat sheen will show the fewest imperfections and be easiest to touch up.

If this is an activity room and you need a tiny bit of wash-ability, you might choose eggshell instead.

This "Quick Tip" video describes sheen to help you make better selections.

If you stay with the light color on white trim, you'll find your room feels larger and more inviting.
