When we moved into our first house back in May, it was painted (inside and outside) with a tan color that I've heard being referred to as "Buyer's Beige." Usually this means that the sellers paint the entire house a very neutral color in order to appeal to the largest number of buyers. It was fine when we were still getting the house in order, but I'm tired of living in a sea of tan. BO-ring! So I've been holding paint chips up to the walls of the master bedroom, and I finally found the colors I want.
The wall will be a cream with just a touch of blue in it, and the trim will be light blue. I want to do some kind of faux finish on the focal wall (the wall behind the bed), but challenge has been to decide WHICH kind of finish to do. So I've been spending time in the garage, painting test boards. I tried sponge painting first, but it wasn't doing it for me:
Same thing, but with another layer of sponging over top in cream
