Work done in the study

Once the panneling had been placed on the walls in the study they now needed to be painted however after the first panel was painted we noticed that where the nails had be drilled into the wood could be easily seen.

Going around the room Abbie and I used filler to cover over the nails. Once dried we then used sand paper and sanded them down to make them smooth so when the painted went over them the nails could no longer be seen, this also gave the panels some nice texture in areas.

Once dried we then carried on painting the panneling using the same wood graining technique used on previous peices, using a base coat then adding another slightly darker colour over the top to then lightly add black with a dry brush to finish.
