tonight ...

... I painted a wall.


Detail:


The doorway leads from my dining room to the kitchen. The wall used to be a gleaming, minty green, then I primed it, put on a thick layer of texture paint and shaped it, and applied a base coat of beige. Tonight I finished this wall with a russet mixed with satin glaze. It took about three hours.

I think I like it, but I'm not sure.

Cool, I've never been! This means that maybe one day when I visit, I can tell everyone that Tuscany reminds me of my dining room walls.

I looked at that photo and thought, "Was that the GREEN wall??"

And it was! It was!

In a fair world, this would be a superfantabulous SUPERPOWER, and would make me famous.

Thanks! I was wishing last night that I already had a fancy camera with a macro lens. I love the texture of it.

That's the "pumpkin" color or it just looks like that?

I like it!

That's a pretty good representation of the color, but I don't read it as "pumpkin."

Are you drunk?

I like it! You did a good job with the glaze, and it's got lovely warmth and texture.

I love, love, LOVE this. Can you come and paint my house please? LOL

We have the dvd's, the paint, the sponges etc but not the energy (two months into our first home and we're exhausted from painting). We PLANNED on doing all the savvy finishes in at least 3 rooms and thus far, whilst the ones we've painted look great we haven't had the energy (nor desire now that we know how much hard work goes into painting) to do anything other than regular paint.

Really nice job.

I decided against sponges because I didn't like the example pictures I found. It probably would be a lot less work, though -- that wall is all brush work.
