I love it! It's so you and Karen is so easy to work with. I also enjoyed strolling through your booth.....and I would have gotten the book pages on the floor and wished I would have thought of that great idea.

Hope you enjoy your weekend.

Hey Miss T.
I love the blog, but you under estimate your talent. You are "uber" talented in your own right.I believe your version was just as fabulous !!

You asked about my dinning room walls. I will explain the best I can on how I did it. First I painted the walls the base color I wanted, a very light creamy white, I would give a name if I had one but I mixed colors and used that. After painting two coats of base paint I used a glaze on top in a wax on wax off method. I used a Ralph Lauren glaze that I already had in my home that was over 6 years old and it still worked. You should be able to use any glaze though. I am not an expert painter but I will tell you from experience, you need to work fast with glazes, I worked on one wall at a time and I worked in patches overlapping so the glaze could be blended, like I said work fast so it does not dry. But I will give you a tip, sometimes if the glaze dried to fast I was able to go over it with wet glaze to help blend, it sometimes removed more of the glaze. I used just plain cotton rags to wipe on the glaze and I kind of worked in circular motions. After I was done with the whole room I watered down the base coat with water and went over the glaze in spots that I thought were too dark. This is my second room of using glaze and I just love this room. I used a darker look in my bedroom and if it weren't for the fact that we are building a new master bed room I would not change the wall color. I hope this helped, don't be intimidated it is only paint and can be painted over if you don't like it, but I really think you will because it looks even better in person.
