You’ve seen this picture before. This is how my reading corner looked a few weeks ago. Then, I decided to change out my darker colors and lighten things up a bit. Notice that the back of my bookshelves are deep red? I painted them that color so the back of the shelves would recede (at least that was my theory).
I bought some sage gray paint and painted the background. After the paint dried I thought it looked a bit too bright so I antiqued it with a clear glaze mixed with burnt umber acrylic craft paint. I simply rubbed it on with a rag.
Sorry for the dark picture. The sun hasn’t been shining here for a few days. This is the same corner as the first picture.
This is the opposite side of the entertainment cabinet. My collection of birds is displayed here.
My husband says I really shouldn’t be left alone at home with a paint brush. Next week I’ll show you some other items I painted.
