I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted! On top of this being an extremely busy time of year work-wise for me, I've been sick off-and-on for the past month and then away on business to boot. Just not much time to get in the HT to do work.
That being said, I was able to get the trim 90% completed. I actually got in the HT for a few hours yesterday and applied the glaze to about 50% of it.
I've changed up the paint color for the walls and gone from a dark brown to a chamois color. In the pictures below, you can see the darker brown I was going to go with on the doors. Once I put that up and saw it against the trim and paper samples, I just couldn't live with it. That on top of the dark wood that's coming for the bar area was just too dark for me. I know that dark is good, but I had to make the change. Hopefully it will all work out.
The trim took waaaaaay longer than I expected as it need three coats of paint to fully cover. If I had it to do over again, I would have put on a dark base first, then two coats of the metallic paint. So in the end with the glaze, I will have painted the trim four times and wiped off the glaze once. Five touches all together. The pictures don't do it justice at all, but it really looks great!
All these pics are the trim WITHOUT the glaze...
Here are the doors to the A/V closet. The dark brown isn't staying. I'm going to do the wall color (now chamois) where you see the dark brown now and then do the glazed metallic for the panels to match the trim.
Not a great pic, but the trim on the left is without glaze and the right is with glaze making it darker.
Back area glazed. Unfortunately the photo does pic up all the effect of the glaze.
I'm heading out of town again this weekend, so I will be the following before I get back in there. Stay tuned!
