There is nothing I love more than aged, plaster walls, and I have been wanting that look for years. I finally just did it.
I had some fabulous inspiration photos…
This one from Spanish photographer Montse Garriga Grau HERE
This one from Sweet Southern Vintage..
For my version, I first used joint compound, which I scraped on and off until I got the look I wanted. After it dried, I sanded just a bit, then painted with “Geneva Swan Grey” Colorplace paint in a flat finish from Walmart. I then mixed a couple different shades of light grey and brown and brushed them on where old walls would naturally be darker. It was not that easy, but I love the look.
I changed a few things on the buffet including adding this inherited vintage lamp, and my dwarf Alberta Spruce in the ice bucket.
My mom brought over some old family photos which I just propped up and decided I liked them that way, so they stayed.
This is definitely not a look for everyone, but it definitely gives some character to the room.
