The dining room revamp, part 2

Once the white undercoat dried, we started adding colour. Totally adverse to white walls, we went for a stone colour on the two large walls, and a deep azure on the wall around the fireplace.

This is me, on the second or third coat of stone.


While wet, the stone-coloured paint had a slight silver shimmer to it, which was really pretty, but seemingly impossible to capture with my cell phone’s camera.

The azure-coloured paint went on green, and dried to be almost black, really bringing out the brass on the fireplace.


Almost finished:


Today, we just need to do the finishing touches (like the borders) and then put the room together again.

Next post: The final product.
