How to Paint a Half Feature Wall: Dark Green

Friday, September 27, 2019

This post is going to be a little different than what I have been posting over here.  Today's post is not about a furniture makeover surprisingly, but it is about our half painted green wall in our master bedroom.

I saw some inspiration on Pinterest and knew I wanted to incorporate the idea into our room.  We have lived in this house for about 5 months and our bedroom was just kinda put on the backburner.  I was so preoccupied with the rest of the house that I never really got to decorating our room.

Although 5 months isn't super long, I am really impatient and just want to make our home feel cozy and happy as soon as possible!


But last weekend we FINALLY got around to it and I am soooo happy with how it turned out.  But, you don't get to see the whole room today ;)  You will see it soon, I promise.

Today's post is just going to show you how to paint this pretty half feature wall!


Paint Color of your Choice
Original Wall Color

Step One:

Start off by using your level to draw a straight line across your wall.  You can go up how high or low you want, that is totally personal preference!  We did ours up a little higher since we were going to add a large floating shelf on the line!

Step Two:

Tape off the are you are going to paint!

Step Three:

Take your original wall color and paint over the seam of the painters tape.  This will ensure that when you use your new color  it won't bleed through and give you a messy line!

Step Four:

Grab your new paint color, we used the color Dark Everglade by Behr, and start painting your wall.

I had to do 3 coats of this, and I used a whole quart of this paint!

Here's what the first coat looked like!

Step Five:

Remove your painters tape while the paint is still wet to prevent any peeling if the paint was dry!

And that's it!  You have a fun half painted feature wall that can act as a headboard or just a way to bring some color into your room!

Here's a sneak peek of our floating shelf we put along this line, and you will see the whole Master Bedroom Reveal coming the blog soon!
