These before and after pictures don’t say the half of what was needed and what happened. I didn't’ realize how badly the walls needed painting until Elv put the stove in this room. I took the opportunity to try what I have been seeing in pictures…to paint in rich colors instead of the standard cream or white. This color is Warm Bark. We painted the floor a brick red and then I sponge painted the Warm Bark in a floor paint over the red. The ceiling is a warm cream/tan color. It’s nice.
And here is a plug for the paint man at Hardware Hank in Hayward. He took my three paint samples and listened to my wishes taking notes and making good recommendations. He understood exactly what I wanted when I asked for him to use the same warm bark color in just a quart of floor paint for the sponge painting. He sent me off to do other things while he created just what I needed. He had everything to perfection at pick-up time. And the following is just a corner of the results.
