I wanted to do something different with my master bedroom walls...

This is how my wall looked BEFORE

Boring, right? I decided to do an ombré wall using dark gray, navy blue and white.

First the dark...

I painted a large stripe the darker color (gray) on the bottom. You can use a roller to save time at this point.

...Then the light

I did the same thing on the top, with my lighter color (white).

Then blend at the middle

I started adding water to my brush, and overlapping the colors on the wall, letting them blend softly.

My technique:

I worked in a crisscross pattern, but that is optional, since the colors will blend and the pattern won't show.

Blend, blend, blend

I worked all the way across my wall, always keeping my brush wet.

Next: touch up

The next day I made any adjustments I wanted using my tray to blend the colors.

Plain Jane to Glam!

Although our bedroom before our recent overhaul wasn't terrible looking, it was definitely "Plain Jane."
