Our construction folk won’t be here this week so I’ve decided to plaster the loft room by myself, incorporating Emma’s fur into the mud. The style is haphazard, but excellently artful and as this is my studio room as well as guest room, that suits everybody just fine.
I will go over the surface with a damp sponge to knock off the sharp high spots, and then the many coats of paint will completely soften the rough surface, and be less “hairy”, and hopefully end up looking rather old-architectural style. Most importantly, part of Emma is now embedded in the walls of the room, and that means a lot to me.
Just for the sake of interest, the tree pictograph ” Po ” continues to be a photo opportunity, and in itself, a marvel!
And with the rest of the week ahead all by myself, I’m going to see if I can get the room painted to my liking, as before; an undercoat of primer, then a couple of coats of the lightest tones in the fir (a peachy tan), with the deepest tones in the grain to be rubbed on for glaze (a sienna brown).
IT’S SO FLUFFY!!
Seriously though, its going to look awesome and Emma will always be there. Its perfect. So glad you got to do it!! xoxo
I am glad too… whew… I was worried the crew would come through and have the house all plastered before I got my act together, so its just as well they are not coming this week! xx
So fir upon fur!
Yes, fir on fur. I did this before, in just a few spots, in our original house, with some fur of my darling kitty Molly. But never a whole room. xx
It is wonderful!!!
Oh I love this!
I knew you would! 🙂
Awesome looking wall finish Jen. Your room will be wonderful when it is finished.
Oh, what a great way to get texture on the wall and have Emma with you always! The future paint job sounds lovely! I am sure it will be perfect and worthy of the time. 😊
