I've painted the walls already, but they are a little too bright for my prim décor..thinking maybe antiquing might the answer. Just don't know where to start...

    I'm not sure what color you painted the walls, but there is a technique you can use to antique the walls. Use a lighter shade of brown. Paint a small area at a time and wipe it off. The brown color will sit in the lower portion of the texture on the wall. It really comes out beautiful. I've done this using several different colors.

    If the color is just a little too bright, use an antiquing gel in a warmer tone and just roll it on over the paint.

      Agreed! This will be the path of least resistance and they actually give a really nice result!

    The antiquing gel or liquid will work, but make sure you get a water based product. It is so much easier to work with and easy clean-up. Just brush it on, then wipe it right off with a clean rag. Only do a small part at a time until you are more confident with it. It should do the job...
