Fall is here! It’s time to get Fall-ified!
Using some of my favorite products by Benjamin Moore, I’m showing you how you can Fallify your home’s interior & exterior all in one weekend.
What you’ll need:
- 2-3 inch flat or angled sash latex brush
- 2 containers to pour paint.
- 9 inch 3/8 nap roller cover with roller frame
- 3″ mini roller with mini roller frame
- Paint tray with liners
- paint opener
- white charcoal pencil
- Scotch Blue painter’s tape
- measuring tape
- 180 grit sandpaper
- dropcloths or plastic to protect your surface
- Benjamin Moore’s #132 Tangerine Zing in a flat Finish (base color)
- Benjamin Moore’s Copper Metallic Glaze
Now let’s get started..
Give walls a light sand & wipe away dust with a damp rag.
Cut in your edges using the base color “Tangerine Zing” with a paint brush. Refer to my video “How to Paint a Wall”
Using a 7″ Roller, roll out the base color onto the wall. Allow to dry completely and apply a second coat if needed. Allow to dry over night.
Use a measuring tape to measure out the height of your wall, divide into 5 equal parts marking your points
With a white charcoal stick (or pencil) and a level, draw out your 4 horizontal lines
Using Scotch-Blue painter’s tape, tape off every other stripe.
It should look like this
Using the Copper Metallic Glaze, brush in the corners that are hard to reach with the roller
Allow 1-2 hours in between coats.
Using the mini-roller, roll on the Copper Metallic in a V-pattern. (Don’t worry that it is not covering completely, it will cover better with the second coat)
Gently remove the Painter’s Tape while the Paint is still wet.
If there’s any bleeding edges, simply touch it up using a little of the base color.
You now have a Stunning new feature wall.
Just add some finishing touches to complete your Fallify-ing new space.
