How to make bright yellow painted wall not so bright
You could glaze it with a different color to tone it down. Take 1 part color and 3 parts glaze. Mix it together to create your glaze. Apply to the entire wall and you can always use a ragging off technique or ragging on. This will tone down the brightness definitely if you use a glaze color that is darker. This is a lot of work though. If it were me, I would just repaint with a different color. I have done that ragging off technique in the past over an entire room and I said then I would never do it again. LOL. Yeah....you might just want to repaint. If it is a small area then go for it.
Other than repaint you can tone it down by adding neutral accessories in the room like rugs and curtains. Off-white and gray are good choices.
Perhaps this will help:
You can take the same paint to the paint store and ask them to cut it with white paint and give it another coat of the cut color.
Hi, if you are not able to add another coat of paint you can always try whitewashing it to soften the look. You dilute white paint with water until it is quite liquidy and then either brush or rub it on. The white will give it a washed out beachy feel and will tone down the bright yellow.
here is some info
Eggshell finish would accomplish this.
Hi! You could always glaze it down with some dark wax. https://www.amazon.com/Chalky-Antq-Sealing-Wax/dp/B018N820MG
Pick a different paint color.
You need to paint over it with a color you want instead.
Add a drop of black or white to the mix. Try with a small sample on cardboard first before mixing the whole lot, just to be sure it's the result you wanted. Good luck!
Paint over it was a yellow with more white added to it for a pastel shade.
Is this a wall you can repaint? If so I would return to the paint store for another color, or if recently painted, ask them to re-tint it for you. They can bring the color down a bit. If you cannot or don't want to repaint, then I would add some cream colored accessories to the wall. Bright whites will only make the yellow look brighter. Also, you could cover the wall with a large wall decal. They sell them on Amazon and that could take some of the emphasis off the color.
Hi there. Thank you all for your suggestions I really appreciate the help. Take care
Add some white to it
