Still working on this room but I thought you painters may enjoy the results of the Cedar Shake Wall.
I am posting a Before as a reminder followed by an After.
I am pleased with the results but it was a lot of work. What made the most difference was spackling every seam to close up the unsightly deep gaps between shakes (that didn't take paint) but still leaving a little groove between each shake.
I also ran some spackling along the bottom rough edges so they didn't appear so choppy. And ... I even caulked between the layers when the overlap wasn't flush.
It looks like my dream -- dipped in paint!! Thanks everyone for your coaching along the way!
P.S. That yellowish shadow off to the right is just a cast off shadow from exterior light off that picture frame or the metal piece of furniture. The color is consistent and perfectly SW Beige Sand.
Great job! It looks beautiful.
It's beautiful. I love your paint color. It looks more of a grey beige instead of a golden, or is it my screen? Anyway I love it!
Thanks to Bullydosmom and Holly-Kay. It was a labor of love and hate. The color is a bit of a beigey/taupe as the adjoining room is newly painted grey (thanks for picking up on that subtlety Holly about the greyish influence)!
Appreciate you folks chiming in -- I have been doing this without much input and second-guessing myself with every coat of paint. LOL
