Do you remember the pots that I faux finished for a client that originally looked like this:
However…… the designer said…
That the client said…..
“They look like Hobby Lobby”.
(pause for emphasis……. and for the record- I love Hobby Lobby. I think God will have a Hobby Lobby in Heaven where everything will be FREE!!!!!!)
But… the client is the boss. So if she is not happy…. I have a bellyache.
The designer suggested I add rust, texture and no shine to the sheen. They wanted them “mucked up”… “not so pretty”.
So, after getting over my initial “how could they not like something I did” and “they are gorgeous just as they are” attitudes…. I painted them with Dead Flat Varnish to take off the sheen.
Then, I had a bottle of this rust texture in the basement that I bought from Faux Effects several years ago. It’s rust in color… its says “rust” on the bottle. May as well try it!
But then…..beauty prevailed! I discovered if I chipped away at the mud-looking rust texture on the pots…. it took the finish back to the original black.
I would love to know …Which do you like?
