Gary + Gayle: Cincinnati, Ohio

While the original plans for their home called for a row of smaller windows placed high along the walls of the master bedroom, the Schneiders wished to be more connected to the outdoors. "We extended the master bedroom at the back of the house with bay windows, and included a fireplace", says Gayle. What resulted is a sort of private retreat that the couple describes as "restful, and free of life's common clutter."

It was a shorter back height of a wing back chair from Sofa Express, in an upholstery fabric with a slightly nappy/fuzzy fern leaf design. (We bought/ordered in this fabric a few years ago.)

They are 2 similar shades of a light grayish, mossy green from Sherwin Williams (sorry - no longer have paint names). Here's the treatment described for a prior reader if this helps, as well. Plus I've included a couple other views of the bedroom.

the paint system/technique is Wagner's Wall Magic. I used to get their supplies @ Sherwin Williams, but my local SW no longer carries their supplies - maybe Lowes or Home Depot would?. I've attached a couple links that might get you started. One is actual supplies on Amazon & the other is, I think, a pretty good verbal (no visuals) description of how to do the treatment. If you can locate a kit, there is an instructional video for visuals. 3 FYI's: 1) There are different type painting rollers available (rag, sponge, wool, etc.). I used the wool rollers. 2) Important to pick 2 paint colors for this treatment & for a more subtle effect, you want to pick 2 colors close together/in similar tones on any 1 or 2 different paint sample cards. And the more you continue to roll/blend, the more subtle it is overall. 3) I added some (non-colored) glaze to my paint to provide more workability & subtlety to the technique. What we found is that is also makes the final finish more durable - a bonus. You'll have to play with your ratio (& possibly different color combos) - I used about 1 part glaze to 3 parts paint & did all the pre-mixing ahead of time for paint material consistency & color in application. We used throughout our home, but I think one of the best photo examples of how this technique can turn out would be the bathroom photo showing part of the tub.

"We extended the master bedroom at the back of the house with bay windows and included a fireplace," says Gayle. What resulted is a sort of private retreat that the couple describes as "restful and free of life's common clutter."In contrast to the refined upholstery fabrics, stacked crates give the master bedroom an air of rustic sophistication. Different sizes and styles create dimension in addition to a well-integrated focal point. Top crate: Hobby Lobby; armchair: Sofa Express
