How did you do the orange accent wall? What color orange? Faux finish?

The wall was a multi-step process using red and orange paint, and a gold metallic glaze with a wallpaper brush. Cheers!

The Shabby Nest
This is a faux finish, but the color is similar to Scarlet Sun by Valspar.

When Judith bought her home, this room was covered in badly worn green shag carpet and wood paneling. Wow...hard to believe...it is so beautiful now!
