How to Faux Finish Using Common Household Items

Faux Finishing is an inexpensive way to change the personality and character of a space. I’ve been creating decorative finishes for over 15 years. and I would like to share my knowledge with you! I am constantly being asked by my clients and subscribers  “How do you do that?” and before I can answer, they quickly respond by saying, “I wish I could do that!”

The good news is, YOU CAN! With the right tools and a little guidance, YOU CAN! 

I’m going to show you how to create beautiful walls just by using items you have around your house. My free 33-page e-book will guide you through 6 simple finishes you can create to transform your home like a Pro. Go ahead and give it a go!

Here are SIX stunning new faux finishes to try with items lying around your house!


First of all, I loved the E-Book. The techniques are easy to understand and unintimidating. I like the fact that no special expensive equipment is required. The explanation of positive and negative effects, in the beginning, makes the rest of the book easy to comprehend. I am going to try the sponge method on my dining room. I’m going to try several colors on a piece of scrap sheetrock first… Loved the book!

I’m new in the decorative painting business and love to learn as much as I can about new products and finishes. Your book makes it so easy to understand and follow. I didn’t realize you could make such pretty finishes with a grocery bag and a feather duster. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent and professional secrets. I can’t wait to do the feather Duster technique.

I’m so glad I bought your Ebook. Not only are the techniques easy to do they are also a very inexpensive way to decorate your home. I plan on doing my bathroom in the plastic wrap finish and the sponge one in my bedroom. By the way, I love your “Ask Cheryl Phan” Facebook group, I’m sure you will be hearing a lot from me.
