These are the exterior beams that frame the outdoor patio in the backyard.  I love this shade of gray perfect, natural on this natural wood.

The ceiling of the backyard covered patio, bead board with a whitewash that complements the gray beams that surround it.

Now back inside, the hood over the stove coming along with the perfect Swedish paint palette.

The bare wood before the paint, just a great example of the important role the colors play.

Working away…

The “head knocker” with the first coat of paint.

The coffee table (a great Round Top purchase) before and stay tuned for after!
