Before and After -- Cedar Shake Wall

PinesEverywhereAugust 9, 2013

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.

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.

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
