Working with Friends Part 2

With last week's home finished,
my friend Robin asked if I'd work
with her on another project
So we packed our bags, tools and paint 
and headed out of town for a week.

This time it was a renovation project.

A dining room

The library walls were painted 
 Benjamin Moore 'Ballet White'.
We lightly glazed them
 and accented the molding with grey.

The crown and frame moldings
 are a combination of antique gold and silver.

The room looks slightly French and very feminine.

And a den

Across the hall, a more masculine room.

This room has one wall
of fitted Habersham shelves and cabinets.
  We grained all the trim, doors and windows 
to match the cabinet's distressed dark wood.

The entire room now looks quite custom
as all the wood now matches seamlessly.

Before and After

Then the walls received
layers of texture and color...
all very subtle.

Once again, we'll never see the rooms
when they are completely furnished,
but it was fun being part of the process.

  2. Sharon! Beautiful. I just found the wall finish for my bedroom/bathroom. Expect a call in the new year!


Thank you so much for taking the time to write. I enjoy hearing from you!
