Are things like venetian plaster, pickled wood, and the torn brown paper with varnish still around? Just wondering cause how would one ever get rid of the venetian plaster walls or the brown paper on walls. They were so heavily textured, etc. that would probably take a lot of sanding or something to remove.
Don't have any of those personally, but I suspect the Venetian plaster treatment removal is doable but tedious. Here is one how to link, but there are several on the Net.
Funny thought, because those were both going strong about when I joined this board Time does fly...(I actually just recently saw a lower part of a bathroom wall done in the brown paper either on this board or on pinterest that was favorably received. If done well and incorporated well, it can still work.)
I found those type of finishes are still used by professionals. When the NEW finishes are less labor intensive, then the public picks up that trend. Saving money and labor are very strong encouragements to pick up the new ways.
Also versatile paints and low VOC's make it more attractive to finish a product without much fumes, tools and masks to do a weekend project!
i still like picked wood look if well done...and as for the plaster? although the texture is still there, wouldn't you be able to paint over it?
I belong to a fb page with primitive stuff and I'm seeing a lot of people doing the torn paper walls in it to make them look old. I know some people are still pickling cabinets. My bil does custom cabinets and still has requests for it.
I am what I am because He is I AM!!!
