Faux finish painting is a technique that creates texture and nuance by replicating the look or feel of other surfaces, such as striped wallpaper, suede or marble. While it takes some patience and creativity to successfully complete a faux finish project, the results will convince you that the work and amount of time spent were worth it.
Paint finishes are rated dull to glossy, and the one you choose matters when you're trying to hide a less-than-pristine wall. The flatter the finish, the more light it absorbs, and the less you notice any cracks, bumps, depressions or rough spots.
