This is my living room wall... we wanted something that seemed warm and cozy for the wall with all of the cold electronic gadgets. The faux suede paint finish really accomplished that goal.


We got the inspiration for this project from a show on HGTV after noting the difference in the mood of the room. The suede paint was easy to work with, was simple to apply, and really achieved the desired effect.

We used Valspar Brown Suede Paint for this project, and didn't even use a primer for the red that was underneath it. The suede covered it up nicely.

I would highly recommend this technique to anyone looking to warm up a space, and make it more cozy.
