We are getting more and more 'faux finish' projects in, here at the shop. This latest one is quite a bit of fun, and took some creative thinking to come up with the design. The couple who owns this piece has decided they are tired of the dark, heavy quality of their current decorating scheme and has brought a cabinet and coffee table to us to 'lighten' in some way. After discussing the customer's vision for their home, we came up with an idea which made them happy.
We are beginning with a creamy color, almost a pale yellow, on certain sections of the pieces. We will also be using green tones and a vibrant red pepper to accent. I know in probably sounds a little crazy, but just wait until you see the finished product. I have learned that faux finishes tend to look a little odd at some stage, but once the steps are completed, the finish looks stunning. Check back in a bit to see the completed look!
