Super Easy Haunted House Wallpaper

Painting haunted house walls with a stencil is one of the best ways to transform a room but can be time consuming and not very budget friendly.

So join me as I show you how to get the look of antique wallpaper using a lace curtain panel and a spray gun. Plus, there’s a bonus technique! I’ll teach you to use a wood graining tool to help finish painting your haunted house walls.
In this video I’ll cover application/painting and faux finishing.
