We're halfway through our kitchen remodeling and are choosing the paint. Since it's a Tuscany kitchen, I'd like a faux finish for the painting. Rag rolling is supposed to be relatively simple with one or two glazes. Does it take a crew to paint the kitchen this way? I hear you need at least one painter and one rag roller to work together. If I decide to contract it out, what's the hourly cost here in Richmond?
Now that the kids are gone, my wife and I want to really dress up the house. We saw examples of distressed painting in an Italian-style kitchen/dining room in an open house in nearby Long Beach. I don't want to overspend, but I love the effect. Can you suggest some cost-effective ideas and techniques?
