Okay, so back to The Art of the Home. My recent paint projects actually have been mostly for a photographer. I showed a few of them a week or two back (I have seriously lost track of time), and here's another front/back pair. Toni wanted some to look like her clients are wandering around interesting old spaces, so she asked me to create the look of that sort of wall. The first few were "plaster" walls, and the latest ones are wood. With all those fabulous riding boots back in fashion, I thought some old hunt club paneling would be a good idea:
|"Hunt Club Paneling" photography backdrop.|
|"Driftwood and Dock" photography backdrop|
Any of these backdrops would make a great wall finish. Faux wood can be done very loose (like the driftwood), theatrical (like the hunt club paneling), or if you want to spend a lot more time, very realistic, like the cedar garage doors I posted back in September, or the oak doors you will see on my portfolio site, theartofthehome.com.
