Sorry for the delay in posting, but time just got away from me. I returned to this job site today for some minor tweaking and to pick up all of my supplies, ladders, scaffolding, etc.
I had originally planned to put a 3/4" silver border, coming 1/2" from the edge. The more I thought about it and tried to visualize, the less I liked this idea. I felt it needed something a little lighter, but I wanted to bring in some silver. Finally, after a couple of days of avoiding this and working on other things in the room, it came to me. I would add a silver beaded border.
Next, on to the 2 fireplace walls. Stacy had already rolled on the first coat of plaster the previous day.
And the very best part of this job is the fact that the owners will be hanging 2 fantastic pieces of artwork on MY walls!...a signed Renoir sketch and a signed Chagall. Look how great this chandelier looks. This is the dining room side of the room.
