1. Paint and Stain a Faux Stone Wall
Hometalker Patty quickly grew tired of the dark mortar used on her home’s faux stone wall. She regretted not going for the lighter mortar, which would have made the property appear brighter and more welcoming. Taking matters into her own hands, she opted to improve the overall appearance by combining paint and water to provide a “wash” for the faux stone wall, making it look more natural and authentic. After mixing a host of colors to get the right stone effects (brown, burgundy, light peach and gray), she painted lightly on each stone to create a stunning effect.
