Today I began about a week’s worth of work at "The Four Little Girl Family". I have done some other work in this home over the past 2 yrs. I will call them "The Four Little Girl Family" because, this couple have 4 lovely daughters, ranging in ages 13 down to about 3. Mom & Dad have this large house very well organized! I am always amazed when I return to this house to see how they manage to have 4 kids, a lot of toys, sports equipment, etc. and everything seems to have its place. The house looks lived in, comfortable, neat and clean.
I am here this week and probably part of next week, to do 2 of the bathrooms which the girls use and to do the long hallway off of these baths that connects to the foyer I did previously. For this job, I decided to just surprise you with the finished rooms when I am done and not show the progress. All walls are just Ben Moore’s Navajo White right now, so a blank canvas for me! The older girls were allowed to pick out what they wanted for each of their bathrooms. This is really going to be a fun job!
I thought I would show you the work I have done in this house over the past few years.
This is their 2 story foyer. I did a Green Limestone Finish here. I had Stacy and another woman, Karen, help me with this…because as I’ve said before, I am afraid of heights! I think this foyer is 18′ high. I can only take credit for everything below that tallest window!
Here’s a little closer view. This finish uses 4 glazes, all applied at once and ragged. The predominate color is a sagey green. Veining is added last.
With all the females in the house, Dad decided he needed his own bathroom! His is in their finished basement and he selected the theme and provided reference materials for me. It’s a long, narrow room, so I can’t stand back to fit the entire mural in the frame. There is a bench mounted to the wall beneath the trees.
Here’s another shot that shows the beach area of the mural.
This border design is in the breakfast area of the kitchen. The doorway opens into the family room.
Here is a close up of the design. It is done in a sepia tone with just a little green and pink coloring.
In this play room I just did a cloud ceiling and the ribbon and stars in each of the 4 corners.
