I know I'm back to these again, but I just wasn't completely happy with the color of the frames. I get neurotic like that, and when I think about it I have to figure out how to fix it. So, I decided to paint them with my favourite black paint . Benjamen Moore,Olde Century Colors called "Lamp Black"....LOVE IT!
I like the wood grain feel, but not the overall color, which you can see in a previous post, so I painted, rag rubbed while wet, and then lightly sanded. I love how you can see some of the previous, grey/blue color showing thru!
Much better, and more suited to me! I'm happy now, no more nagging thoughts....
I love all things beautiful and enjoy being creative.I have always liked old homes and their amazing character that they have.
We bought a 130 yr old farmhouse in the city that we are fixing up as we speak. So, I hope to find inspiration and joy from it.
I have always loved old homes and buildings. I finally found an old home in the city, close to work and good schools. It is 130 yrs old,but is in pretty good shape structurally.Lots of character, high ceilings, and charm. But it needs updating, so I am documenting our renos. Hopefully, I do this house proud and it turns out the way I intend. One thing I have learned is things dont' happen as fast as I would like...I have to be patient ,and living through messes aren't so great for me ! As my husband always says,"You have to break an egg to make an Omelette!"
Hope you enjoy my journey!
