It’s Time for Faux to Gaux

June 22, 2015 § 2 Comments

spongeDrop the sponges, folks. Honestly, without trying to offend anyone or stomp on creativity, I have never seen such awful faux finishes in my life! It’s high time we roll over those ugly paint jobs and simplify our visual lives a bit. And if you plan to sell your house anytime soon, please listen up.

Faux is out. It was hard to perfect from the beginning but as of now, it has been totally overdone. From walls to kitchen cabinets to dressers and dining room ceilings, enough!

What’s in? Paint. Just plain paint. And in some applications, wallpaper. But not too much! No need to match the curtains to the wallpaper to the bed linens. As one who tends to find a badfauxgood thing and overdo it, I can certainly sympathize. But the next time you have the urge to spend hours dabbing wet sponges on the wall or cabinet door, take a deep breath and stop.

    A M E N ! ! ! ! ! LOLOL! I met a new neighbor recently and she was very excited to show me the faux finishes she’s done. Yikes! She’s an old schooler. I don’t think anyone in their 20s or 30s even 40s or 50s for that matter these days would even consider ‘sponging’ .

      Thanks for your comments, Linda! I am sure I have offended a few faux finishers out there — including professionals — but that faux ship has sailed… so to speak. I just had to say something. 🙂
