Red Echo

April 17, 2007

I painted the ceiling of my new room last night, before going over to the Garage, using some “pearlescent” faux-finish stuff. Looking at it today, it’s subtler than I’d intended, but I actually like it better than the silvery finish I thought I was going to get. It’s more of a glow than a shine; you probably wouldn’t even notice it if you didn’t know it was there, but it brings the light up and makes the room feel open.

This afternoon I’m going to paint the remaining walls. I’m worried that the cream color I picked may turn out to be too pale, but I guess that’s easy enough to fix.
