Yikes, this job has a lot of prep work! I will spend a good 3 days getting the various surfaces in this room ready for the finishes.
This is my favorite wall, the curved wall. It is also done with the same real wood panels, but in this diamond pattern, where the grain of the wood alternates direction with each square. All of the crown molding has been removed because a new ceiling was installed. This curved wall has dentil molding that will be replaced and I’ll finish. The seams will NOT be filled on this wall and the diamond pattern will stay in tact, just get a finish.
Two new walls were constructed because some old built-ins were removed. I will do a finish on the new walls and some new built-ins will be installed. The units will have open backs, so you will see the wall behind them.
Tomorrow I will take some pictures of the proposed sample boards. The techniques have been decided, which is why I am able to begin the prep work, but the final colors may need some adjustments.
