Doing a feature wall, or a staging wall for photography for example, doesn’t have to be expensive and it’s not too difficult. It really just needs time. I had done a staging wall for my photos this year and here is one I did with Charlotte from Furniture Revivals in Zurich for her workshop wall. She wanted an old world look and yet a certain elegance to it.
We both think that we achieved our goal.
This is what we used:
- Wooden panels
- Texture medium for a rougher structure for the base. You could use joint compound or plaster
- Paint – different shades of neutrals. We used Dixie Belle Paint and Annie Sloan
- Texture medium to create raised stencil. We used VP Antico from Artisan Enhancements but you could absolutely just use joint compound or any other brand you like or have on hand.
- Saltwash and Sea Salt Fizz (Autentico)
- Stencils (these two are from Artisan Enhancements: Damask and script)
- Tissue paper (you can also use any decoupage paper or rice paper or even napkins)
- Mouldings (we used Woodubendmouldings #1309)
- Waxes to enhance details
- Paint brushes, sponges
- Water mister
- Sanding paper
Here are a few pictures of the wall we did:
