The front part of the downstairs room (in Cora's house) is going to be the dining room. I wanted to do something special, so I decided to do 2 colors on the wall. I started with the lighter brown, but it really wasn't what I wanted. So I pulled out my stash of scrapbook paper, and looked through it for inspiration. I found a piece that looked like suede, and I realized that it was just a light brown with a dark brown on top. So I sponged the darker color over the first color on the wall, and this time I was very pleased with the results.And once I pulled off the blue tape, the inspector stopped by. I think he approves.
