All of you who’ve been following this blog know that the Mosaic Panel design has been the main sticking point from the beginning.
Finally, I was flipping channels the other day and saw Katie Couric’s new show and she has a mosaic panel in the background of her set. The colors and style are perfect for this wall unit!
I paused the screen and got out my phone and took a picture.
I started with a Honey Maple Stain over a sealer coat, then, using the pics as a guide, I laid out the pattern.
With the pattern laid out, I gathered all my colors and masked off one color at a time and sprayed, rolled, wiped and blotted the different finishes on the squares.
After unmasking, a top coat of satin pre-cat lacquer finished it off.
I was so excited, that I stayed up late to install it.
I still need to add a light rail to the top shelf (haven’t made it yet)
In case any of you don’t remember, here is the “before” pic. Quite the transformation.
I’ll take some better pictures with my Nikon and post these as a finished project soon.
(Once the light rail is added)
Thanks for following along.
