Painting the Upper Walls of a Girl’s Bedroom «

  • Step 1: Mark a Staggered Pattern on the Walls
    Using a pencil and level, a staggered pattern is marked off every 15″ along the walls. At each point, a small piece of painter’s tape is placed on the wall for easy visual reference.

    The finished pattern will draw the eye around the room, making the space appear bigger and brighter.

    Step 2: Roll Paint Over the Stamps
    A thin layer of paint is rolled over the stamps before pressing them (leaf paint is Maidenhair Fern and flower paint is Wild Orchid), in an alternate pattern using even pressure, to the wall.

    Step 3: Apply Tangerine Paint in the Flower Center
    Tangerine Zing paint, applied to the center of the purple flowers, helps pop the purple and green colors.

    Step 4: Spray the Bed Frame with Paint
    The bed frame is moved outside to a well-ventilated area and sprayed with Metallic Pale Gold paint. Protective masks are worn to protect against paint fumes.

    New finials are added to the bed and the scrollwork is accented with the same colors used in the room.
