Faux brick accent wall
Completed project. I used Weathered Wood Antiquing Gel, White Wash Antiquing Gel, Polo, Wedgwood, and Cobblestone on a base color of Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. I did a wash of Weathered Wood over the entire wall. The blue tones may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it makes my window treatments pop and looks fabulous with my kitchen cabinets. The remaining walls will be painted with BM Revere Pewter.
This is the before pictures. Yes, the wallpaper was lovely but it no longer worked with the room.
Wall paper removed. Wall lightly sanded
Wall were primed with HTP Primer. I had a quart on hand so I used ii and saved myself a trip to the hardware store. Did I mention I don’t like heights?
Base coat applied. Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter
It was a process and definitely took longer than I anticipated, but most projects do! I cut a regular kitchen sponge to size to make the sloped bricks along the ceiling line. The entire project took the better part of three days. That includes drying time.
I thought this looked too blue so I used Weathered Wood Antiquing Gel.
