    OK, Miriam, thanks for the compliment. I did not use epoxy on the ceiling. I did this faux finish with artist acrylics and latex paint. Only the floor, counter top and toilette are treated with epoxy.

    To KMS Woodworks. I looked at the link you posted. Thanks for sharing it. My honest opinion is that it looks a little over done, especially the pyramids in the living room. I wonder if those are actual paintings, like spell it murals?

    could you give me instructions on the counter top with the wallpaper please?
  • Carla K Ouray, CO
    It's simple. I bought the wallpaper online through Illusion Wallpaper. also called Berlin Wallpaper. They offer a variety of different marble and stone look paper and they also have a video with instructions on how to use this wallpaper. It's so very
