Dear friends and readers, the previous days the artist-painter added the undercoat to the paneling of our living room.

010Oak paneling before the primer was added.


02Start of adding the first coat.


Even though this is only a primer, it has given the room a completely different look. Don’t you think so ?


Actually you can’t see that much of the timber anymore, but in one of the next steps, the painter will gently reveal the oak wood.



The panel moulding is much more accentuated than before, which I really love.





This is how our living room looks like today.

I can’t wait to see the painter adding the next layers !



Me, explaining how I would love to see the patina which has to be added next week.

We asked the painter to make a lot of patina samples but untill now, we haven’t made our choice ! This really is the hardest part !

To be continued…
