A while ago, I was asked to do some different projects for my friend Willi. Here are some pictures from that project:
I did a faux finish on the wall with a dark brown and tan, then went over the top of it with a tan glaze to knock it back and add some dimension. Then we rearranged the furniture and brought back in her wall hangings.
This is the surround that I added to her fireplace. It was a flat wall previously. I taped off the area I wanted raised and used a faux stone plaster texture to give it some dimension. Then I added a custom raised stencil. After it dried I painted and antiqued it.
The next project I did was to paint some faux shutters to add around a window on the inside of the house. For these I used the basic white plastic shutters you can buy at a hardware store and painted them to look like real wood. I then painted the handle and then the hinges on canvas and cut them out to give them added dimension and hot glued them onto the shutter:
I wish I would have taken a picture of them installed, but forgot my camera!
