Are you kidding me?!

I’ve taken most of my vacation days this week working on this silver wall for my husband and he comes home and says “it looks too faux”………

……okay, breathe……

This is the 2nd coat….


….he thought it was going to look smooth…..duh, why didn’t you tell ME that….I could have told you it wasn’t when I was buying the special roller and telling you that it was going on in a CROSS-HATCH pattern…..MEN!

Well, he’s going to have to live with it for at least a year…..I say “embrace it or repaint it yourself”

…..all that being said…going for a 3rd coat to make the mosaic pattern not quite so obvious….. “what’s a wife to do?”….


  1. You are a good wife to hold your tongue like that - I think my husband would have been channeling the look of the tin man at that comment! LOL

    Interesting wall! I love doing something "out of the box"

  2. I say from now on do it how you want it. Men just don't get it. I've tried to tell my hubby my ideas and he'll say it's too over the top, so i do it anyway and he's always surprised how good it looks. I think your wall looks great! Thanx for sharing with all of us.

  3. I think it looks great too. Tell hubby to remember that once the tape is off the walls and the furniture is back in place and a few strategic accents are added - he will love it. (Or learn to love it quickly) lol

  4. NOOOOOO! oh. my. gosh. Tammy!!! Just for the record, I actually really like your wall, though I would never in a million years have thought I would.
