Just for today, I wish I were set designer


I paint things and last night I had a dream about the coolest wall finish.

In my dream this whole room was all deep blues and greens in a glazed tie dye effect, there was a traditional stencil over top of it, like a wallpaper, done in subtle metallic silvers. Sounds a bit much, I know, that's why I wish I were a set designer because it would be perfect for a Real World or Bad Girls type setting.

Perhaps because we (my friend and soon to be business partner) just finished painting Rich's backdrop (the one you see here) for the home show and have been staring at silvers over blue all day -- but I'm telling you -- this tie dye wall in dreamland was the shiz-nizzy.

Mel -- it's somthing I love to do and am working on turning it into a business. I paint furniture too -- that's my passion and thing I will get paid for. The wall treatments are fun, but I think it would loose it's spark if I had to do it all the time.

This wall is all brush work -- my friend came up with this particular design -- it's even cooler when it's not bead board.

I will post more -- you don't have to ask me twice, I love to show off.

Kari -- thanks!
