The Light at the End.......

Here is another peek at the gallery wall project for my living room!  I am almost done!  Yay!!!  It feels like it has been going on forever now. 
Mom, if you're reading this, you can have the couch back!  :-)
the starfish and coral are not permanent yet, still deciding if I will use them or not.

I only have 5 frames left to finish glazing and sealing, then I will need to add the chicken wire.  Maybe it will get finished today, that is the goal!

I have to say, I am loving Deco Art paints right now!  All the paint for this project, except the yellow, is from Deco Art!  They have so many great colors, and if the color isn't quite right, it is so easy to mix them.  I did that to get the blue I wanted, as well as to darken the red a bit.  It also mixes well with Valspar glaze mix.  I think my new favorite Deco Art paint is the Burnt Orange, it is such a great color!  I know I will be using it again!


  1. So glad you posted this. I was wondering where the first frame was going. Now, I can see the whole picture. Funny, you wanting to give the couch back, like she can drive across town...

  2. Wow, Melissa, the colors truly look great together!

  3. Will be fun to see the end result! I am needing to do some sort of wall arrangement over my sofa so maybe i'll borrow some inspiration from your project!
