Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been up to for the past couple of months. I’m wondering where all that time went!
I’ve been busily working in my studio in the evenings and helping a fellow painter out during the day. As you may have noticed, I’ve been really caught up with the decorative concrete overlays lately. Nothing has changed in the past couple of months! I have had the opportunity to help a fellow faux finisher install a countertop overlay. Terri was nice enough to let me delve right into each stage of the process. I now have a much better idea of the whole process as well as many tips and tricks for all those details that are so important.
Back in my studio, you’ll find a large drying rack holding 14+ samples in various stages of completion, a 5 gallon bucket of concrete and drill laying out for daily use, and a generously sized table papered off where all of the work happens.
Here are a couple photos of my studio in full “concrete overlay” mode:
My two new favorite samples from my efforts:
I have a couple of concrete overlay projects coming up that I am excited about. One of them will be at the restaurant Rusty Taco. This will be a silver metallic finish that will go really well with their men’s garage theme. The second project coming up is an island for a family whose original countertops have cracked. We are going to match the original counters to keep the look of the original kitchen intact.
I’m excited to write a post after they are completed to share the process!
