Painting Faux Finishes
Want to spice up those boring walls in your living room? Add a touch of unique decor to your bedroom walls? Try a decorative painting technique called faux finishing. It involves the use of simple tools like rags and sponges to create the illusion of texture where there is none. Use rollers, combs, brushes, and rags to turn your simple smooth walls into marble, brickwork, or cracked stone. This process gives depth to any room. Use any colors you like and just have fun. Faux finishes can resemble wood, suede, plaster, or Italian marble, and can even be done on ceilings to give the illusion of extra height or other effects. Try it on furniture, such as wooden coffee tables or end tables, for instance, to provide a antique look. This faux finishing process is desirable because it can achieve the look of, say, marble, but without the high cost. There are many materials out there you can use as part of your DIY faux finish project, such as using drywall joint compound to add depth and texture, or a bit of glaze to add some shine. Check the Internet, book store and library for tips on how to go about faux finish painting for residential or commercial purposes. It's certainly something you can do yourself by hand at home, but you can also hire a professional painting company or interior designer for the job as well. Such professionals can provide custom murals, faux finishes and other techniques for your home improvement or remodeling project. Blending, rolling, and brushing are all popular decorative faux finishing techniques, and you can get as creative as you want. Take on your DIY project after assembling the necessary tools, such as sponges and paint, which you can find at a home improvement store.

Painting faux finishes for a decorative interior design can definitely give your furniture a new look. Hand painted finishes are always valued and artists will generally put a lot of work into what they do. There are companies available that will paint faux finishes on your furniture while letting you pick the design and color. Commercial businesses and residential properties can both have guests enjoy the art of a painted faux finish. The restoration process of an antique piece of furniture will probably mean the owner will want to restore it's original look with a faux finish. Painting faux finishes can be done by a professional painter or contractor who has experience making custom orders. You may find that one company will come to your home to do the painting, while another one will require you bring the piece of furniture to them. Getting a piece of furniture out of your house may be very difficult, so if you need a contractor to come to your home make sure this is known. Decorative furniture that is hand painted can be very valuable and a prized possession. Ask an artist to show you pictures of previous furniture they have worked on to see if you like the style. Compare prices with other painters or contractors in your area to find out who gives you better quality for a lower price. Find customer service reviews to find artists that you may want to avoid when shopping around. You may find that a person couldn't finish the work on time, asked for more money at the end, or didn't satisfy a previous client by their finished work.
