The old bench has been moved, the wall extended and electrical run. Today I headed over to the lumberyard to pick out some paneling to put on the wall to make it aesthetically pleasing for a backdrop. I chose instead to go with paint. The paneling would have blended too well with the woodworking to come and I wanted it to stand out. I have seen many photos lately of fine woodwork with a grey backdrop and I like it very much so I went with grey.
Aftere I got the wall painted it looked like the inside of a ship and that wouldn’t do for me. I spent enough time on the inside of a ship for one life, so I went back to the hardware store to find a rag roller and some accent paint. I ended up mixing my own color using oops paints. I rolled on a few different shades to give it some depth and I was happy with the result.
I am thinking about painting the door, but I am not sure what color would look good. I am going to use blue pine for the trim as it will match my cabinets, so maybe something that goes well with that. If any of you have any ideas that would help let me know.. I will probably make a new “chairman of the board” sign to go on the door that will be more legible.
I put some pieces in front of the wall to see how it looked and I liked it. So did little grey.
I will be starting a video when I make the first piece which will probably be the saw till, thanks for stopping by. Let me know your thoughts.
