Fresco Lime Paint by Pure & Original

Can I tell you how excited I am about my ‘new’ wall? We have been knee deep in a living room makeover project. We have removed and replaced just about everything except the children! I decided that I want a cloudy finish accent wall.

The Before – Plain Wall Before New Paint

Here is my ‘ before’ photo of my normal wall. Actually, the wall was a dark sage green to start and was not initially going to be the accent wall. After starting to paint the room we made a few changes to the plan and decided that we would move the television from one wall to this wall and make this the cloudy accent wall. fresco lime paint, pure and original home renovation, living room, painted wall Continue reading Painted Wall with Fresco Lime Paint

Painted China Cabinet with Decoupage Backing

As soon as I got this vintage china cabinet I knew that I wanted it for myself. We have a bookcase in the living room that I intended to replace with this piece and fill with books. I love the look of a painted china cabinet filled with books. No one says you have to keep china inside.

The Before – Unfinished Vintage China Cabinet

This china cabinet is vintage, in great shape with fixed shelves and dovetail drawers. It also had this neat metal webbing of sorts over the side glass panels. And it also separates into two pieces which makes it much easier to get into my shop to work on.china-cabinet, vintage china cabinet, unfinished china cabinet, new york, staten island Continue reading Gray Painted China Cabinet with Decoupage Backing
