I have had a few questions on how I painted the brick wall in Jaysen's room. So here it is. First I painted the whole wall a light tan like the rest of his room. Go here to see his room post. Then I took a rectangle sponge mop head and and ripped off the edges so it wouldn't have such a straight edge. (Sorry I haven't any pictures this was pre-blog days.)
Then I went to the store looking for cheap small cans of paint. I used red, brown and yellow (of coarse they were oops paint or dented sale cans.). By accident some were flat and some were gloss. But that helped give the wall a 3-D texture feel. I just dabbed combinations of the three colors on the sponge and pressed it to the wall. Then repeat. Many of the bricks looked to transparent so I just re-stamped them, which only added to the depth of each brick. I just started at the top of the wall doing one row at a time. Pretty simple. Very time consuming. It took me one whole day! But many people actually think it is real brick.
