Oak trimming her new foyer.


Thanks for the link Renate. I've been trying to figure out what to do with my entryway since 1997 and I think I found the answer in one of the pictures on that site.

Awesome, G... which one? I'm always curious what techniques other people use. I'm about to do a tissue paper treatment to a bedroom wall. Never tried it before but... how hard can it be?... (she said before the beads of sweat appeared!)

Renate, I said those words before, "how hard can it be?" when I looked at my unfinished basement, and then I found out when I finally finished it 3 years later...... Ahhh the beauty of ignorance.

Smoothed and painted below that. However, that still leaves me with "what to do with the ceiling"?
Texture & Paint?
Do the same oak trim and panels like I did on the half walls? It'd sort of match/look like the dining room ceiling...

... opinions?

Wifey #1, we need to talk...... The borders at the ceiling are sooooo 1990s..........tres passe.

I think there will be too much going on in that room. I would do a very light texture if you really must.

Yeah, DM, I tend to agree with Yum on this one. Borders are a bit dated, which is why I tried to steer you toward something more subtle.. but why not just skip it altogether?

YM, ignorance is bliss! (where's the emoticon with the finger up his nose?)

Yes, here is a sample from the Sherwin Williams site:
http://www.sherwin-williams.com/pdf/...ssue-paper.pdf
They go into detail how to do it also. That's where I purchased my package of tissue paper. I was surprised that it comes in such huge sheets. I will try crunching up the paper in long rope-like lengths, rather than wadding it in a ball. That should give me more vertical rigdes and not wrinkles going in all directions. My wall will be a rich, dark brown color overall, with other colors added by hand. I have a light source (window) coming from a perpendicular wall to the right, so just to the left of each raised ridge, I'll paint thin stripes of black/brown to exaggerate the shadows. Then I'll do a dryer application of lighter grey highlights just to the raised parts. I am hoping this will look more like tree bark when it's done.

Wow! That sounds amazing Renate. If you have time, could you start a thread about it in the Project Showcase? I think a lot of people would love to see the whole process and how your walls look when you're done.

Sure, I can do that. I'll be working on it in a couple weeks.

Here are a couple of closer shots. This is taking a bit longer than I had planned.... there are over 100 pieces (so far) I had to create to make it all work.

...taking longer than planned?... what? That never happens!

Looking really good though. What did you decide for the upper wall?

Textured ceiling, smooth walls. Possibly crown molding/trim, if I don't like the transition.
