Above are pictures of a dining room I just glazed. By clicking on the first picture, you can enlarge it and see the very subtle glazing effect on the wall. This gentle treatment adds interest and enhancement while allowing the dramatic ceiling treatment, chandelier, and furniture to be highlighted.
The client had a $500 gift certificate she purchased with her high bid at the Heart Ball, a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. We used the overall feel and decor of her home, the fabric that her window treatments were being made of, the upholstery on the dining room chairs, furniture colors, etc., to decide upon a treatment for the tray ceiling. At first we had planned to paint an anaglypta paper with coppers and gold. She didn't know of a wallpaper hanger, so I did some networking and found her one; in the meantime she found a similar wallpaper for purchase, so she decided to use the gift certificate on her walls instead. I was so happy to be able to help her complete the elegant look of the dining room by offering ideas, providing a referral for paper hanging, and applying a faux technique!
I have another job coming up to change a previously painted front entry door to one that looks like wood. The client gave me a lovely wooden piece of fruit to use as inspiration, and these are the color combinations I have put together for her. Eventually she will also put this finish on her garage door, which will bring a very rich, natural look to the exterior of her home.
Here you have it - a transformed fiberglass garage door! The owners are working on a total home remodel, so when they are done with the front of the house I will take a picture how beautifully this dark wood look door blends with the architecture of the home. I'll be matching their new front door to this, too.
Thanks for stopping by my blog! My purpose is to share my passion for and knowledge about faux finishing with you. Now and then I might just add a little personal information and pieces of my art!
