You may have seen my recent project I did with the faux brick feature wall in my sons room, well here is a similar one I did in my daughter room later, but this time I added a little more detail. 👌🏻


I started by grabbing a new kitchen sponge and cutting it to the size of brick I was after. I also cut along all the edges really roughly as I didn’t want my bricks to be too smooth and “ blocky”, if that makes sense. 😅

One side of my daughters room is painted in “heartfelt” by taubmans, so I decided to use the same colour as a base.

I started by pouring a small amount of paint into a lid of a container (the less paint in there at a time the better and easier it is to work with) and then I dipped the sponge into the paint and then pressed onto the wall.


(This photo is from the wall I did in my son's room, which is why it's a different colour.)

Once I had finished sponging all the bricks onto the wall I then proceeded to do the next colour, which was a beautiful gold.

I just used the corner of the sponge to sponge on some random bits of the gold paint on top of the pink.


At this point I hadn’t planned to add a third colour but I wasn’t really happy with the overall look, it was quite dark and overwhelming.

Too dark.

I decided to go over it with one more colour, a light dusty pink. (Left over from another project)

This is where it really started to look beautiful. The light pink sponged lightly on top of the dark pink and gold added a “white wash” effect to the look. It lighten the whole look without taking away the feature of the gold and darker pink.

And so we got our final look, up close it looks so beautiful with the 3 different shades of colours. My daughter is very happy with it. ☺️

    It looks really nice. How did you decide on the spacing of your “bricks”?

    Very nice but spacing perhaps a little closer to look more like real brick?
