Believe it or not I created this wall with tissue paper, YUP! The same stuff you wrap your gifts with. In fact, I bought the tissue paper at the Dollar store. This faux finish is not only easy to do it is also budget-friendly.
The best part about this technique vs wallpaper is, you don’t see the seams and it’s a lot less expensive. Here are the 4 easy steps to creating this yourself.
#1: Separate the tissue paper and roll it up in a ball. Make a bunch before you start to apply it to the wall.
#2: With a roller, apply wall paper paste to a 4×4 area. Unroll the tissue and lay it gently on the wall starting in the corner. Use a soft brush and VERY lightly brush over the tissue to flatten it down and get all the air out. Let dry overnight.
#3: Paint the entire area with white eggshell paint. Any brand will do.
#4: Mix 2 parts glaze to 2 parts metallic paint and rub on the wall in a circular motion with a car sponge. DO NOT use a heavy hand or you may tear the tissue paper. Let dry.
And that’s it, YOU’RE DONE
