We are getting close to finishing a large home addition. The walls and ceiling are sheet rock, but we would like to have some sort of finish that is different than the standard orange peel texture. Any ideas on a good looking sheet rock finish?
Now that the kids are gone, my wife and I want to really dress up the house. We saw examples of distressed painting in an Italian-style kitchen/dining room in an open house in nearby Long Beach. I don't want to overspend, but I love the effect. Can you suggest some cost-effective ideas and techniques?
