Humbled-Just an update

Here I posted about choosing the perfect paint color. Well...I am humbled to say... love the color, but on such a vast area it is a little WOW! So please forgive me if I came across as a know-it-all in that particular post (or whenever for that matter).

So, now, with my wallowing done...onto the project update! My vision has crystalized and I am about 1/3 done with the aqua paint. This really has been a busy week to take on a project. Then, I have experimented and come up with a whitwash technique that acheives exactly what I was after in the beginning~ looking like the sun has faded it~ On the large wall behind the couch and the corner with the windows, I will put wide plank paneling (2/3 up the wall) which will look weathered and whitewashed also.

Hubby is not completely sold on the whole vision so I told him I would DO IT ALL, with just a little help with the cutting of planks. Wish me luck! And this weekend is busy, busy too so I will be working well into next week. :)
Have a Fabulous Weekend!
