I am going to remodel a small building (627 sq ft inside) for my office. I want it to have an oriental look and feel. The doors, facings, and windows are stained a dark mahogany color. I am considering painting over these w/ a black lacquer, but is there a way to maybe sand over the surface and do a black wash of some sort so that i won't have the paint chipping problem in the future? Also, where can I find grass cloth by the bolt? I want to cover the ceiling in a couple of rooms. What is an idea for window coverings? I am considering looking for bamboo rollups of some sort & covring them on the front only w/ an exotic silk. Where can I find a good price on silk? Or a better idea is welcome.
