Hahaha yep ;p. She’s in the creative area so its subjective to the artist & clients tastes. Its difficult to navigate sometimes & takes self-confidence (& thick skin). Most art is made & then sold to whomever likes it enough to pay...in this field they pay & then you create on-site hoping the result is to their liking. In other words, its freaking nerve wracking & can cause you to have a mental breakdown if you over-think things!

BUT...distressing furniture/cabinets correctly (vs walls) takes skill & knowledge of natural wear pattern areas.

Its become HORRIBLY common for ppl on the chalk painting bandwagon to “distress” furniture & cabinets until they look like a strip in progress. Has made the word ‘distressed’ feel dirty to a lot of finishers because that’s what ppl picture when they hear it :0

Completed room, understandably not for everyones taste. But, for this client in this room, in his profession, in this day and time, it works.

Well, no. But his SO refers to the decor as the ‘deconstructive, crumbling’ look, so - close.

I actually love the walls & would totally do something like that in a home office @ our place...I think the ceiling is is what would throw most people off since it takes it to another level. The metallic sheen is beautiful & you did a fabulous job! I bet that ceiling hurt...is there a pattern lay over top?

Yes, it was stenciled twice actually. Ouch. Thanks for the kind words.
