With Fall just around the corner, it’s time to start getting 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
white charcoal pencil
Scotch Blue painter’s 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” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoFqX2m8guY )
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 ScotchBlue painter’s tape, tape off every other stripe.
It should look something like this.
Using the Copper Metallic Glaze, brush in the corners that are hard to reach with the roller
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) Allow 1-2 hours in between coats.
Gently remove the Painter’s Tape while the Paint is still wet.
If there’s any bledding 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.
But why stop there?
Let’s bring some of this Excitement to the Exterior
Clean your Surface from Grease & Dirt by washing it down with a mild cleaner.
Sand the surface lightly with 180 grit sandpaper.
Remove dust with a damp cloth and tape off any surface you don’t want to get painted.
Using an exterior latex in a low luster finish, apply multi-coats until your color is desirable.
Benjamin Moore’s Aura is my favorite paint to use on exterior doors. It goes on smooth & always has amazing coverage.
Always paint in the direction of the grain.
Now for the fun part..
Add in some of your favorite fall accessories to give your home that instant curb appeal.
I love decorating with antique boxes. It adds charm and character.
Take the time and add some of your own personality to your entryway
Fall has never been so FUN! Hope you enjoyed this diy project and thanks for stopping by.
