|and here is the "after" shot.|
love, love, LOVE it!!
|i started by simply washing on a very diluted mixture of annie sloan chalk paint in paris grey...|
in this shot you can see that i have painted about 2/3 of the stone (the grout too).....
already seeing a huge difference.
|here you can see one layer of the wash...but some brown tones were still showing through.|
|so i added another layer of wash...at this point the brown tones were gone but the stones looked too flat.|
|so i dry brushed lighter shades of the gray |
(just added some white house paint to the grey wash)
until i liked the effect.
|so much better!!|
this easy peasy project took just a few hours and very, very little paint.
what a difference!
what do you think?
