Faux Painted vintage style brick wall backsplash

Hi there and welcome...I have been busy all day with painting up some white washed brick. So last evening I was looking for some wallpaper on line I knew I wanted brick but there was just so many choices, so I thought I would sleep on it. Well the next day I woke up and decided that I would just paint the backsplash my self.




This backplash is also paneling and the same green tea color as the walls.




So I got to work mixing some colors together. I used a sponge red, white and black paints. I just kind of stamped the sponge here and there. So I have to tell you I totally was going to stop and paint the wall back as it was but my curiosity got the best of me and my conscience got the most of me it was saying "quitter", oh heke no I am not a quitter so I kept going.

After I had all the bricks stamped on I let it dry .......once dry I took a small brush and painted all the grout stuff around the bricks....let that dry.


And once again went over all the bricks so it would look a bit more blended on the edges.





 I then mixed some water with some white flat paint and brushed it on then just ever so gently pressed a rag to sop some of the paint mixture up


 It was touch and go for a while but the end results was not too bad

 I crafted this sign last week













If you are a beginner I would suggest practice first. Thank you so much for stopping on in!
