Remember when I said I wanted to use Wash off the lime paint to give the fireplace a little makeover?
I went with the sample to the far right (#103 from JH Wall Paints) I finally got busy painting earlier this week! I love that either!
The color change is very subtle, but the lemon wash adds a lot of warmth and texture to the space. My only regret is that I didn’t do this sooner.
Small change but really big difference, it makes the living room feel So more comfortable!
Here’s a look at the fireplace last Christmas.
And this Christmas.
I just love the way it makes the fireplace a focal point in the room!
Texture is hard to capture in a photo unless you get really close, but in person, the lime wash paint adds a lot of soft texture and dimension. And even though this was my first time using lemon wash polish and I was a bit nervous to handle this myself, I had no issues with the application. I followed This tutorial Exactly, and it turned out very cool!
With the stove feeling even more cozy, I couldn’t wait to comment our stockings!
This was a very beginner-friendly drawing project. If you are considering using lemon wash paint in your home, I highly recommend it. I love it so much I’m trying to think of another place in my house where I might be able to use it!
