Faux Brick Walls
We had 3 rooms in our house that were in desperate need of a makeover and when our new brick stamp arrived I knew it would do the trick! I swore off wallpaper years ago after we bought our house. Every, and I mean EVERY wall, was covered with wallpaper and I spent weeks removing it. Yuck! So when I saw the brick stamp I was sold. All I had to do was wash the wall and stamp it. Easy peasy. Really, and when I redecorate all I have to do is paint over it. No messy glue or paper to remove!
I LOVED this brick stamp so much that I have used it on 3 walls so far!! It instantly changed the whole room with very little work!
Here is my upstairs ‘powder room’ wall…
zzzzz..VERY BORING! It was the perfect small space to try out the new stamp! I quickly washed the wall and got started. I used the white decor ink with the ink pad and got to work!
In less than an hour and about 1/2oz of ink, it was done!! I am so happy with how it turned out!
I loved the brick stamp so much that I did 2 more walls. Here is my daughter’s room before.
Its a nice light grey, very pretty but a bit boring and she wanted something funky and unique (she’s 15) We were originally going to stamp the wall behind her bed but we loved it so much we decided to do a wall that you can see the whole wall.
For this wall, I used FAT chalk paint ‘chalk white’ with a foam roller.
Voila! My Daughter absolutely LOVES it (which if you have a teenage daughter you know that anything you like they don’t haha so this was a HUGE deal)! The wall is very soft looking, with the light grey wall & white brick (makes it hard to take a picture of it) but in person it is GORGEOUS!! It adds a completely different feel to her room! This wall took me about an hour and less than 4oz of paint!
Last but not least, I decided to do our new spare room. This is my son’s old room that we made into our new spare room.
I scrubbed the walls (you’ll understand if you have a teenage boy… yuck) and painted over the dill pickle colour with the same light grey as my daughter’s room. Just that alone was a HUGE improvement.
