For the last two weeks I’ve been busy applying a three layer plaster finish in a two story Great Room. It’s Versiplast plaster – one of my favorites for a soft textural durable wall finish –
When I started plastering the walls, trimmers arrived to create decorative column tops for the wall of windows. The client wasn’t sure about painting them white – they considered staining them to match the fireplace, but parts of the columns were made out of mdf. I went home that night trying to see how close i could get a sample to their fireplace color using faux wood grain techniques –
I taped the sample wood grain up to the windows, where the columns will be mounted. The color was perfect!
They are already looking awesome, I can’t wait to see them after I do the final layer of S&S Antique Mahogany. A shout out to Cait Whitson, who came to America several years ago and taught wood graining and marbling to a group of us – those skills have come in handy more times than I can count, THANK YOU!
I can’t wait to see the room completed… I thought I’d be finished by Friday – today I started glazing the near 800 sf of walls and realized, even with a helper tomorrow, I don’t think I’ll get it all done. Rats. My body is achin’, but the end is near!
Thank God tomorrow is Friday!
