Small spaces can often be the best places to add brilliant splashes of color. Can’t decide on one color, how about three?
To complete this project you will need the following:
⋅ Paint – 3 Colors
⋅ Paint Trays
⋅ Contractor’s Paper
⋅ Paint Rollers
⋅ Roller Covers
STEP 1: Paint Wall Color 1
This look was designed to showcase 3 colors. To begin remove all possible décor and furnishings. Divide the wall you are painting into thirds, paint the top third with your first color.
STEP 2: Paint Wall Color 2
Paint the middle third of the wall with your second color.
STEP 3: Paint Wall Color 3
Paint the bottom third of the wall with your third color
STEP 4: Allow To Dry
Allow the wall to dry two hours before you begin blending.
STEP 5: Remove Excess Paint
To do this roll over the contractor’s paper until only a small amount of paint comes off the roller.
STEP 6: Blend Colors – Bottom
Start by rolling the third color up over the second color. Use more roller pressure below the dividing line and less above to create the blended look. Be sure to repeat step 5 if you need to add more paint to your roller.
STEP 7: Blend Colors – Top
Repeat steps 5 and 6 to blend the middle color over the top color.
STEP 8: Enjoy
Allow the paint to dry 2 hours before resetting your room. Enjoy your new ombre look!
