Day 2 and I’m still on schedule, even with the addition of 2 more smallish areas added today to this project. My clients decided they want this same finish in a small Butler’s Pantry and Back Entryway, both of which are directly off of this kitchen. I was able to do most of the pantry today while I was taking a break from the main part of the kitchen.
I am adding some grape vines, randomly placed around the room. Boy, this is one stencil I have used over and over throughout the years. It has several combinations of leaf groupings and grape clusters. Years ago, I stenciled each grouping on mylar, so I can tape them on the wall before actually stenciling, to get the placement right. Stencils by Royal Designs.
After stenciling, I applied a thin layer of joint compound, which I troweled on randomly. This is to give a more aged look…so it’s not so perfect and new looking. This will dry overnight and then I will seal and apply some glazes.
