Did I mention to you how much I love this painter who does the base coating? I've got to get his card. His name is Warren and he is the nicest guy and just look at how he moves ALL the furnishings to the center of the room and COMPLETELY wraps everything all up! Those of you who are decorative painters will truly appreciate this. He leaves plenty of room for ladders and to be able to easily move around. Amazing! This wall will be the focal point wall.
The other three walls are mostly floor to ceiling doors and windows, so little wall space to play with there. See all the snow we are getting in the background? This job was delayed a few days because everyone fell behind because of the snow. It is beautiful, but since we are getting so much of it every week, it is negatively impacting the local economy.
The first step was to put a soft glaze, using Modern Master's Metallic Burnt Orange, on all walls. I'm loving this Burnt Orange. I used it for the thin stripes, straight from the jar, in the Living Room...on those stripes. Here is a glazed wall and an unglazed wall, so you see the difference. When the Burnt Orange is mixed with a glaze, it becomes less metallic, with more of a soft glow. Very warm. More tomorrow.
