Finally today, I share with you my office/loft makeover reveal.
I have been very anxious to share my experience with La Craie chalk paint.
What started off as something so simple, had me tripping along every step of the way.
ALL faults of my own, if I may add, and it had NOTHING to do with the paint!
I have been dying to try La Craie paint that my dear friend Shannon from Fox Hollow cottage is now a distributor for.
First it was my color dilemma.
Shannon helped me out with that.
You see our home is pretty much an open floor plan.
It is really important for me to decorate our home with color flow throughout.
So this was after I painted it the piece. The color I chose is called Mardi Gras.
I picked that one to compliment the draperies that actually go all the way up to the ceiling, and are seen from the loft as well.
You can see the green here.
Now it may make sense to you as well the colors I chose for my Artwork makeover
View from down below when you enter the front door.
So after I painted the piece, I decided for the inner panels I would scrap book paper it.
Well as shown here earlier, it looked AWFUL!
it was very shabby chic ish, which was not not the look I was going for up here.
My husband kept asking me, what are you trying to achiever here Deb.
MIKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, I have no clue, just shut up and leave me alone!
How am I going to fix this is the problem.
WALL paper…that is what I will do.
So off to Lowes…AGAIN, to buy a roll of textured wall paper.
Certainly could not leave it white. That would totally not work either.
I will use my copper color craft paint that I used when I stenciled my ceiling medallion.
This space has NO windows. However, when it is a nice sunny day and sunlight is streaming through from Jack’s room, I promise to take a better photo. I was kinda anxious to get this out there.
It really did turn out pretty.
Certainly a lot lighter and brighter than the Before.
I Loved working with La Craie paint.
It was smooth, there was No priming, no sanding and covered completely in two coats.
