Here is the ceiling tray I painted in the same home as the small columns. It is a very lovely metallic finish that can be completed quickly and without too great a cost. The chandelier is a family antique, crystals with gold fleck embedded, which really benefits from the complementary shimmer of the ceiling.
It's been a while since I've followed up on my work, but here are the garage doors I finished last month, and columns that I did two days ago. These are not in the same home. I enjoy working outside when the weather is nice; however, these doors were in the bright sun most of the day, which meant I only had the first few hours of each morning to work. When the sun heated up the fiberglass it was impossible to move the faux product and would have produced undesirable results. Not a problem - loved the challenge!
These columns were a simple plain cream color which was a distraction, so this soft finish really packs a punch! They don't steal the show from the beautiful doors or lovely marble surfaces - they blend well and add to the textures and colors of the home. I was able to complete them in one day because of their small size.
My family really isn't close, and we don't have too many traditions. Sometimes when I have gone home to visit for a week, my sister has only had time to see me once for 45 minutes. So this visit last week was very special, because in my four day stay I saw my sister three days in a row and the rest of my family twice for several hours at a time! I met my great nephew for the first time, and reintroduced myself to my great niece - they are so cute and we had a marvelous time playing together. Although it didn't snow, it had snowed, so we did get to see the white stuff on the ground and have some great photos. We probably won't get up north again for several years, but we do so hope that some of the family can come down to Florida to enjoy the sunshine and beaches!
Back to work tomorrow, and I'll have some new faux finishing photos soon!
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!
