I had a chance yesterday to check out Roy and his progress at my client’s house.  It looks amazing…I’m loving the transformation and enjoying watching the entire process from beginning to end.  Some of you expressed your thoughts about it the last time I posted on this.  I hope you are just as excited to watch the makeover as I am!

Roy has started on the entryway and dining room.  He hasn’t yet begun the family room, but here is a sample of the glazing that he is going to do in there.  The background is the actual, painted wall color.  The sample board, in the front, shows the left side, which is the wall color and then the right side, which is the glaze over the base wall color.  The particular glaze is too yellow for my client, so he’s going to tone it down and add a bit more grey/brown tones.  But you can see the overall effect that glazes add.  It’s not a color over another color.  It’s a light finish, which adds color and more importantly, texture.

On the right is the sample board for the vines that are going to be painted onto the dining room walls.  Again, the left side is the base color with the vines and the right is it with the glaze over.  We’ve decided that even with the glaze, the vines are too prominent, so he’s going to tone them down more and make it feel like they were grown there…more natural.

As you can see, he’s come pretty far with this room, so far. But he still has a ways to go.

I haven't shown you much of the kitchen but it’s been pretty much done for a while now.  I wanted to share a picture of the beautiful cabinets, counters and appliances.  Soon I will write a post of their kitchen transformation... along with the rest of the house.

Now for one of my favorite parts, so far... the entry.  Roy hasn’t started on the walls yet (the paper lining and tape are still up), but you will get an idea of how the room is going to look with just the gorgeous ceiling.  It’s been painted a base color and then foiled lined.  Roy normally would work the foil with a brillo pad to distress it but my client was going for a less distressed look so we opted to keep it smooth.

I’m just as excited as my client to see the entire home completed, pretty and perfect.  Roy is really talented, knowledgeable and great to work with.  Please let me know if you have any questions regarding his work, as he does pretty much everything.  In the meantime, he’ll be at this house, working away on the walls.  I will continue to share his progress.
