I've done a two tone texture on the wall. Its 'victorian garnet' and a lighter lavender pink.....

Beth - I really like it! I love how you just did an accent wall. I think it looks really good. One day I will get brave a paint the rest of our house. In June I painted our Kitchen and Great Room. I was a little worried about the kitchen at first. But it turned out fine.

Do you like the way it turned out after that second coat of garnet?

very nice hopefully it turns out the way you want it to

I love a bold accent wall! I usually only get to paint boring conservative colours, I'd love to do some faux finishing and some really bold colours for a change. Did you have fun doing it?

I've actually ended up just doing a flat color and abandoned the texture idea. I'll need another coat to cover it all the way but its coming out okay.
