Larry Martin, who grained our parlor and the Main Street Studio, has been busy so I’m going to take a stab at doing the woodgraining myself. First step is to paint the woodwork with the undercoat, which in this room goes very nicely with the colors already there. But when it’s finished it will be the same dark wood that we have in the parlor. I’m a bit nervous trying the graining, but I’ve got lots of scrap wood to practice on.
While I was hanging wallpaper samples, I also taped up the border that’s going to separate the two terra cotta tones. You can see it just under the light switch. The border is one of the same papers we used on the ceiling but in a different colorway.
