When you open the wardrobe each morning to decide what to wear, you’re choosing how to present yourself. Clothes say a lot about us, our moods, and how we tackle the daily routine.

Ever thought that the same might apply to the rooms we live in and spend time in? Choosing how to dress the walls and spaces of your home  is like selecting an outfit to frame your day.

We could say that wall dressing is an art form. Using a well-chosen decorative paint to do this means adding the right value to your space.

How to paint a glitter wall

In general, you have two options when it comes to creating a glitter wall:

This is certainly the quickest way to create a glitter wall. Simply mix the paint carefully with the additive and apply as normal.

2) Choose a decorative paint that already contains glitter
