A Change is GOOD!

We needed a change in our bedroom.  We just had the plain old white walls.
I saw this awesome technique in my neighbors house and she
even came over to help me!  So nice!
Here’s what we did.  First, we randomly scrapped joint compound on the walls.
We used a trowel to spread it.  You want to be careful when using this technique,
because it will change the texture of your walls forever.  It was the look I was going for
though…so we went for it!
We got that done and let it dry overnight.
Next, we painted the base color over it. 
We used the color Simplify Beige from Sherwin Williams.
(This isn’t my best picture, but I wanted to prove that I was really doing this!)
Next, (sorry I didn’t get a pictue of this step) we used two colors of glaze.
We used a dark one and a light one and made X’s on the wall.
Then you use a damp cloth and wipe the walls using a circular motion.
Not to hard.  Just enough so that the glaze stays on the textured part.
Here is the finished product!
I don’t know if these pictures do it justice, but we LOVE it!
We have dimming can lights on the ceiling too and it adds a nice touch!
