Elements of Big Style in a Small Space: Unique Wall Treatment

Yesterday I showed one element of my mom’s powder room, her fabulous light fixture made from an outdoor lantern.  Another way to create big impact in a small space is wall color.  Hopefully this will come across as its true color, a rich red-orange.

She took it a step further by creating texture on the walls with joint compound.  IMG_0613This is super easy to do yourself, but a little time consuming and messy.  You just need joint compound and trowels.  You can get 5 gallon buckets of joint compound at any home improvement store, and you may or may not need to thin it a bit with water.  Practice a bit on a scrap piece of plywood or drywall. Slap the compound on the wall with a trowel and keep smoothing until you get the texture that you want!     

Stay tuned for more elements tomorrow…..accessories!
