Faux Finish -Plaster Accent Wall

With the weather now perfect for leaving the windows open, I’m catching up on a couple of indoor painting projects. I wanted to give our room personality on a tiny budget of time and resources.

A few basic supplies was all that was needed. I had an idea of the look I was going for and then just jumped in and started improvising.

Here is how the room looked after adding these painted end tables turned nightstands (see previous post).

Here are a few pictures of the process.

There is some subtle texture that shows when the sun shines.

The lamps looked a bit different when I brought them home. I added new lamp shades and replaced the harps to lower where the shade sat, rather than searching for a uncommon shade size. The harp and shades were from Home Depot.

These were the nightstands before. I chose them for the open style on the bottom and the fluted detail around the top edge.

Homemade Chalk Paint

With a darker, warmer paint colour on the walls the room instantly feels cozier with a shoestring budget – both in supplies and time. Those are my favourite kind of projects these days.

Now that its Autumn I’m making wreaths again. I will have more of these wheat style wreaths available in early October. They ship within Canada and will be available for local pick up too.
