I am pleased to update you about our living room redo because yesterday the painter started to bring on the final layer of paint over the wood.

We were very thrilled to watch the painter adding so many layers of paint to create that French 18th century look of our paneling.

Even though only a part of the paneling is yet painted, we do feel the spirit of the 18th century already. Don’t you ?


3A picture never can show the exact color of the patina. We have chosen for a shade of gray-green.


I show you here some pictures of our painter at work, the previous days.

Many layers of paint were added on the oak wood of the paneling.





We really had to be very patient to finally see the result. But it’s worth it !





I just love the detail of this moulding.
