Once upon a time we bought our first house. A brick home built in the sixties-yes with many many many walls,.. and here we have the dining room.
At one point in time our family frequented this space with DAILY dinners! Then life became busy, Kids grew and activities spread us out more and more so many crock pot dinners were taken on the road. …and my dining began to take on a different look…
Notice the dining room table has been pushed aside…
…and then it was gone and I had the idea to have a bold teal wall,.. and painted a faux shiplap.. dont judge. I feel those judgy eyes! But you never know till you try! It was kina cute. For a minute. Then I had the privilege of working with Pure and Original Paintin Classico (aflink) and I fell in love! This is absolutely my favorite paint to use!
I have to admit. Its my favorite. And you guys know I have looked long and hard! Now you see that teal.. yes I liked it! But it had to be reduced to a phase,..
it was time for it to go!
After wiping the wall down with Simple Green I painted the entire wall in “Wall Prim”
This is a unique primer made specifically for the Fresco to adhere and work properly over.
I really just wanted to stay right there. I loved the richness of the color which was tinted in “Earth Stone” to match the Fresco Color I had chosen.
The next day I went on to paint one layer of Fresco. (aflink)
First thing is grabbing bottle water to dilute. With Pure and Original Products you can always bet your paints are going to come in THICK! This means you get more pigment and product in your container! PREMIUM Quality. Using bottled water I diluted up to 10% just get the product to my chosen work-ability. Then using my uber-awesome large Fresco Brush I began working in vertical lines working quickly to encourage wet to wet contact.
So,. I will be getting to work on another Fresco and guess what?!?!
It will be time for another giveaway! You will not want to miss it! Be sure you have subscribed to emails to be updated! Until then I invite you to go check out the new web shop! They even have a whole now hand painted color card with LOTS of GORGEOUS new colors!
