Hey friends! Today I’m excited to share another room in my new house! Over the weekend, I worked on this little dining room and added some finishing touches to the room! I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. The wall with the window and door (that leads to our backyard) was white and a bit boring but I knew I could jazz it up and make a faux wallpaper with DecoArt’s new METALLICS paint from the Americana Decor Line! I am SO in love with this metallic paint! The entire project cost less than $10 and took less than an hour to complete! Amazing right?
- DecoArt Americana Decor METALLICS paint in Champagne Gold
- Craft Brush(es)
- Scrap piece of wood or paper
- Blank wall
I found this pattern inspiration on Pinterest by searching Brush Stroke Pattern and loved the cross hashes and how perfectly imperfect it is. Isn’t it fun! I actually love it in navy but we all know, gold is my jam so I went with Champagne Gold from DecoArt.

I used a scrap piece of wood to try out a few different brush strokes. I used the wide stroke which ended up being the easiest one and my favorite look. All I did was repeat that stroke in horizontal and vertical strokes to fill in the whole wall.
The Metallics paint is now available in Michaels Stores! It’s not in the craft paint aisle but you can find it in the Stains and Finishes aisle with even more of DecoArt’s Americana Decor line.
The entire process took less than an hour! The jar of paint is less than $10 and I only used half of the jar. So basically, I used less than an hour of time and $5 worth of paint to create a total show stopper wall! YES! I am totally smitten with it!
I painted the door navy and I love how it pops! I was going to do it white but my kids use this door constantly to go play in the backyard and my husband, the genius that he is, mentioned that white would looks dirty quickly because the kiddos overuse of this door! haha! I love that he thought of that. He’s a keeper.
