Taking a break from the exterior and working on the inside. I tend to jump around and I never go in order. I used wall patch first instead of joint compound. The texture it thicker making it easier to work with. I love using cosmetic sponges to apply the paint.(they are super cheap at the dollar store)...I used vintage white, antique ivory and beach sand. I aged it using the beach sand color followed by my favorite ink pad (course brush dipped onto the ink pad). The ceiling is made from cardstock. Then I used a hot glue gun to make designs to resemble old ceiling tiles. It is coming along.
