Fourth Time's the Charm


First try - beige paint with brown sponge paint (too splotchy)
Second try - sand (too bland)
Third try - sand with trellis stencil (thought I would like it but not so much on the whole wall)
Fourth try - sand with brown and metallic gold on split sponge roller and rag rolled to blend (I doubled the amount of recommended glaze this time).

    Very beautiful! I'm thinking of a bedroom wall in a rich purple or green.

    Thank you. Sounds beautiful. I have done a green focal wall and a purple focal wall before and have loved both. Be sure to share pictures when you are done :)
