Once you’ve gotten plenty of splotches on all four walls, wash out your sponge, and let the walls dry. Then get a clean container and another color, and do it all over again with your next color patting between the last splotches. You can let the splotches in this color touch or overlap the color you did before, it doesn’t matter. Just be sure and let the base color show in spaces throughout your painting. Repeat this process with each of the colors you purchased. Four or five colors is about right.
A creative way to improve your home is to put paintings up in each room. You can choose several smaller paintings or one or two large ones for each room. This will give each room its own unique feel and provide a feeling of comfort. Paintings, being relatively cheap, also will not hurt your wallet too much.
While printing up a full budget for every project is always smart, always add a little extra to your final price even if you think you have everything covered. It’s better to be ready for the unexpected if it occurs than to have your whole project stalled because you’re short a few dollars.
