Empress Estate in Woodland Wa. Fireplace Faux project #1

One of the first projects i was hired to do at the Estate in Woodland Wa.This Fireplace mantel is going to be primed, sanded and covered with lime plaster stucco then a color wash will be added to complete the finish. I will have more photos soon!

The Empress Estate sits on a bluff overlooking the small-ish, quiet town of Woodland just 28 miles from Portland. Its look was restored to a Europen chateau look with its surreal swirlling sandstone stucco columns, gargoyles and dipping roofline. Its going to be a bed and breakfast type getaway place. It reminds me of some places I painted in northern Cali in the Sonoma valley.

Here's the entrance way with its mighty cypresses that came from Italy. A lot of detail went into this place! The owner Zoe has quite a vision for it as it sits on about 20,000 sq ft!
