Not long after I had painted the dining room a vibrant apple green in Spring, I was looking for a change. It’s probably because I had gotten so incredibly inspired by the gorgeous watery blues of the ocean so I wanted to try to recreate its look at home. Before doing the entire wall, I did a test spot and lived with it for a few days. I decided I liked it. One afternoon, I pulled everything back in the space, threw down the drop cloths, got out my paints, mixing bowls, sponges and a cookie sheet and went to town! It was a messy process but I love the end result!
You Will Need...
- drop cloths
- white & turquoise latex paints
- mixing bowls
- chip brush
- tap water
- sponges & rags
- cookie sheet (I use as a tray)
Step by Step Instructions
Mix turquoise latex paint in a bowl with water.
In another bow, mix white latex paint with water.
Using the sponge, start in one corner square on wall, and in a circular motion wash the walls with the watery paint mixture.
Let each layer dry. Reapply as necessary until you achieve the desired wash you want.
