not just walls & ceilings...

Over the years I have used my Kalklitir/ lime-colors
on so many things in my house, other
than just walls and ceilings. 

For example...

it's very easy to change a
plain terra cotta flower pot using lime,

and get old & weathered look on 
a brand new basket...

 Here you can see what some 
acid wash & lime does to
new zinc buckets.

and it's always great to be able to change
beautiful candlesticks that have the right
style, but not the right color,
 into something you love.
(these where new & are made of wood)

(but this candleholder is old brass)

I've also changed the look and color of 
of all kinds of furnitures and frames, 
both old & new,

and even used it
in some art work I'm doing ;)

As you can see I love all grey colors, so I use them a lot,
( plus I often give things lime-wash, over the base color
 to get that old and worn look that I like ;)

You can always mix your own beautiful shades of colors,
 f.ex. by adding Ivory to a dark color like Doloriet,
Celadon secco or Winter secco.

Hope it has been inspiring and 
thank you for stopping by...
