PAINTING A BEAUTIFUL CEILING MEDALLION WITH THE WALL COLOR
For the past couple of weeks I've been working in the most beautiful home under construction.
The owners asked me to paint a special finish on alllll of the cabinets in the whole house. They want everything to look old. I think they said they are wanting it to look like a lodge.
Yesterday I got permission to take pictures of anything I want, but I can't say where it is or who it belongs to. I do understand that! So, I'll be sharing lots of pictures with you. It's one of my favorite homes EVER!
They got this beautiful large ceiling medallion for the dining room and said maybe I could paint it to match the cabinets nearby. I said, I'll be glad to do that but let me show you how it will look if I paint it with the wall color.
It was already white. I used the wall color and painted on and used a rag to wipe off some areas. Then, I painted the swirly scrollie areas more solid to contrast and set off the lighter wiped areas.
Because the paint was an eggshell sheen, it did not need to be sealed.
My clients were very happy with the way it looked with the wall color.
It really does look so nice!
I love all of the colors they're using in this house. They're gray greens and greeny off whites.
This house is out in the country and these colors look so beautiful with the beautiful nature scenes you can see from their very large windows.
