But have you seen what it takes for us to be able to paint? Let me share my last experience in that area. It was at our last house. We had been in the house for 6 years, and I finally (after much convincing) talked Steve into painting a wall red.
Here's the before picture...But in order to paint that wall the correct red, and do the correct faux type paint, we had to find just the right red and glaze. So here's our sample board. And yes I know some of those are absolutely hideous, you should have seen the ones that we painted over on the bottom there with the color we actually chose.And ta da! This is what we came up with. I tried to get a close-up of the tecture, but none of the pictures actually turned out to where you could see it very well. We did a base coat in a color called French Red, (it is a Kwal color). And then glazed over it with a burgundy glaze. We rolled the paint on, and then painted the glaze on with X's and then ragged some of the excess off. We could have left it with the glaze painted on with the X's and would have looked great, and ragging off the excess just added a little more texture.Here it is with the furniture in.
