I will be spending part of today back at my client’s home where I just completed the Powder Room before New Year’s. I have a few touch ups to do in that room, but will mainly be working on some on-site samples to try to duplicate the finish I did 5 years ago. As you may recall, I will be carrying this finish into the new kitchen space. I have some good records of the steps I did for that finish, but I also remember struggling with several layers of that finish, so just want to try to work it all out before I actually start this portion of the work in a few weeks. I am also presenting some finishes for the new mudroom and laundry room.
I have been working in this particular house for 11 years now so I thought I’d share some of my past work with you.
This is a bathroom that is located in the basement level of the home. The homeowner has a dog and cat and this bathroom is often used for grooming the pets. I did this mural in 2003. You know, I’m not even sure the dog is still in this home. I didn’t see him when I was there last. He does rotate between this house and the ex-spouse, so I’m hoping he was just away, but will try to remember to check on that.
Here’s a close up of the bandanna. I did this so long ago, that I cannot remember who’s stencils I used. I believe some of the stencils may no longer be available. I know the hooks and leash were stencils, but the grooming tool and bandanna were done freehand. The paisley design on the bandanna is from Royal Design Studio.
I will feature more rooms from this home throughout the next few weeks.
