These are the before and after photos of the projects that have been (and will be) going on in the 130+ year old Victorian House since I purchased the house. From Stenciling the walls to painting murals, and furniture. You can see the before and after photos, and keep up with the latest projects as they happen here at the site of dddavids Ghost Cams.
Never be intimidated by a renovation, restoration project. The hardest part is getting started. Always plan what it is that you want to accomplish, research your project, and start on your project. You will be very happy with yourself when it is finished.
Painting a Wall Mural
In this project it wasn't that I didn't like my terracotta colored Dining room, it's just that it was beginning to seem too dark for the mood I wanted in a room I see every day. So it was time for a new look.
In the Dining Room Wall Mural project, I started by measuring up the wall at a height equal to what I had done in the Living room. After that I made sure that the horizontal line around the walls in the Dining Room were level, then it was time to paint on the light beige base coat on the bottom half of the wall. I followed that with a 3 inch border on top to separate the top half of the wall from the bottom, like a chair rail. After that I painted the top half of the walls a light green base coat.
