Never fauxed painted--which one should I try?

21 years ago


I posted this at the Decorating Forum so I apologize if you read it there also.

I need help deciding which faux paint would be good and the colors. Thank you guys for your help. I've never faux painted but I think I can.

I painted three major colors in this new house. The kitchen, breakfast and family room are terracotta. The entry, mudroom, den (library type room) dining room and laundry are olive green. The master and master bath are a tan.

I want the house to end up with a Western, slightly rustic feel.

While I love terracotta, with the rusty brown floor, the overall feel is just a bit too orange for me. I'm thinking maybe I should do some faux painting with the "Woolie (Home Depot) look. I can't decide what colors to mix. If you don't mind going to my link below, I would love your input.

I also included a sample of my granite--the actual piece is nicer than this photo. It's more of a true coffee with cream/tobacco look.

Another problem I have is that I used bullnosed sheetrock so it's very difficult to start and stop different colors.

In the photos the green looks more green than the true olive green it is.

Thanks for your ideas. I appreciate them.
