{painting techniques}

Just observing the paint in both the above scenario as well as the the below. It certainly has got me thinking about all of the possibilities. I love how the walls in the top image look dye-dipped. The above space was shown at the 2010 Hampton Designer Showhouse and was designed by Lisa Sternfeld.

As for the below nails I came across the below tutorial on Pinterest that shows a technique to create marbleized nails. Looks kind of fun to try for a change. Oh by the way, are you on Pinterest? If so come and find me here.

I still may be just a plain and simple kind of paint girl. What about you?

Yikes! Those fingernails are wild. But the walls are divine, and I tahnk you for the inspiration. I have used Ralph Lauren Paint's tutorials for paint effects and had great results.

Have a great day!

Unfortunately, there are several of these painting companies who claim to be the experienced and reliable workers, cheaper than others. However, this can mean that they are not doing it properly, completely and safely. I’ve heard about www.affordablepainterslondon.ca they seemed to be the right selection providing expert application with professional methods and quality tools and products on repainting. I think it’s one of the importance home owners would consider.
