This weekends episode of Design Star had the season 4 contestants competing against each other in the “White Wall Challenge”.
The catch- they could only use things found at a grocery store!
Since I put my design together earlier this week, I used this photo of what a previous seasons cast had to use furniture-wise when creating my drawing:
As always, just hover over the photo above to see it transform from a previous seasons White Wall Challenge photo, to what I came up with.
The two paint colors I chose are Sherwin Williams’ “Sea Salt” (or something like it), and just a plain old regular white.
I would cut brown paper bags into squares and saturate them in a glue/water mixture. Then I’d apply them (backwards) to the walls, to simulate a khaki-colored wainscoting. (Backwards so any writing that might be on the bags wouldn’t show)
The last thing I did was “paint” a wide, chocolate brown stripe down the center of the sofa with Hershey’s syrup to simulate a throw blanket.
And there you have it!
It was so fun putting this together. I may actually have to try the broccoli topiary thing sometime! Ha ha! 🙂
