145|365 Try & Try Again (5/29/11)
To get the soft leather faux finish we had to paint a darker shade on top of the lighter shade then put plastic on the wall and wait a while before pulling the plastic off. After doing all that we didn’t like the results so we washed the walls and tried using other techniques such as a broom, plastic bags, sponge and several other odd ideas. None of the techniques yielded results that we liked so we washed the walls yet again & painted the second coat of the lighter green and called it good.
Most everything is back in place now and we like the look of the room. Once our new black refrigerator with french doors arrives on Tuesday we’ll see if it looks all perfect or if some other tweaking is needed.
