Earlier in my career at or about the time of TVís ďTool TimeĒ featuring Wilson as Fauxlynn equated me to in one thread, I was approached by an independent marketing director representing one of the regional tv networks wanting me to develop a weekly televised home improvement how-to segment, the proposal allowing me free reign with set development as well as content, also having me host and perform the how-toís. Being the camera shy person I once was, I regretfully declined. After revisiting some of ďTool TimeĒ episodes only a few days ago, had I been filmed behind a picket fence with my face being concealed like Wilsonís always was, I might have accepted the offer.

Yep, Iím wrong. I completely missed that tiny slice of soffit. Good thing my advice is worthless.

I canít say Iíve ever painted a chicken house but painted many things inside of one. One of my earliest shops, equipped with a spray booth, was a converted chicken house on a commercial chicken farm. Although the chickens had been long since removed and the place cleaned up, Iíd periodically get a chicken feather embedded in my wet lacquer films.

Evolution of Words Unique to the American Vernacular:

Chic: elegantly stylish and fashionable

Origin: greater NYC, circa 1975

A young New York area painter was turning out some fabulously finished pieces of millwork and cabinets from his converted chicken coop studio. With occasional blemishes, which he convinced clients were intentional and desirable, caused by stray chicken eider. At first members of the City's elite avante-garde referred to the work as chicken coop. It wasn't long until they shortened the word to chicken....and finally one Nile Rodgers Jr. referenced the young artisan's work as CHIC, and it stuck.

Now you know. You read it on the innernets, so it must be true!!!

Damn bro, Iíve been made..

Although putting out cabinetry and millwork exclusively for NYC clients out of my coop, that was probably 10 years before my time and wasnít me. Ive worked for some of the heaviest hitters in the art world, some chairing museums such as MOMA. Iím often blown away at times at what some consider to be art and the attached prices. Makes me wonder as my mind often churns thinking Iíd like to pursue something along those lines in semi-retirement which is only 6 short days from now.

I still hold firm on the suggestion that itís a knockdown finish with or without an aggregate that was painted and then sponged or rag finished with either paints or heavily pigmented glazes, probably not being waxed as I initially suggested. The scattered white color initially led me to believe that it was waxed, wax typically turning white, but now that I got a better look on my pc, Iíd retract the suggestion that it was waxed skipping the washing with mineral spirits unless I was on site and 100% certain there wasnít any wax on it.

Ewwwww! Would someone really have WANTED their walls to look like this?

Under the soffit in the second photo, there are ripples that look like the mudding job was rough. I havenít seen that kind of ripple in wallpaper. Iíd want to scrape the whole thing off like some kind of scab that festered.

Hmm...wonder what peroxide would do to this science experiment? Or vinegar, we could scrape damp baking soda into the texture and spray...okay, okay, Iíll go back to my corner... but it still might be fun to watch!

Are you suggesting the OP should slice up the drywall and sell it?

While you all were debating what animal hide was used as wallcovering, I went ahead and painted it. ...You're welcome.

That's why I never try to help people choose colors! I've repainted walls too many times at my own home to know I am no decorator.

Well, decorator or not, itís still an amazing improvement. If I had the original walls, Iíd want them vacuumed for dust. I canít imagine any scenario where theyíd look nice!

Besides, your redo had nice corner shading!

The color looks strikingly close to a pair of womanís panties one of my clients wanted me to color-match, handing me the panties in a very seductive Mrs. Robinson-like fashion when I was very young. I took the panties to my local Mooreís dealer to get scanned. The guy mixing my paint stretched them over his head wearing them as hat while mixing. It was pretty funny watching this big dude wearing womanís panties on his head, dancing to the background music while he was mixing.

I may not be an Interior Decorator, but I do know art. And now the room is complete.

Obviously well trained in the use of the colour wheel.

I was just watching some Voodoo Child covers as well as some Hendrix live versions just before you posted this, a couple of the covers by Orianthi and another by YouTuber Sima B. It’s one of my favorite Hendrix songs and guitar songs in general. I also saw Stevie Ray just before he died.

Without the proper training, a mistake could easily be made.
