Paint It Faux
Out with the old paint, and in with the faux finish. This look is increasing in popularity and can be done by simply dipping a damp sponge in a color of the same family as the base paint, and dabbing the sponge on the walls. This technique adds dimension to any room.
Mad About Marble
A marble look instantly elevates a space to appear more chic and expensive. Try it out on your walls by applying a tinted glaze over the base coat. This method requires more patience than the others, but it’s well worth it. Use a mini roller for the glaze to achieve a more realistic look.
A Knack for Knockdown
This drywall-style finish is for homeowners who want a more understated look. The two main tools you need are a spray texture gun and a knockdown knife. The final appearance is less dramatic than a popcorn finish, making for one sophisticated result.
