Faux Finish Your Walls in Significantly Less Time


(ARA) - Faux finishes are one of the best ways for a do-it-yourself decorator to get a truly custom look. Faux painting and papering techniques -- including glazes, marbled looks, wood grains, sponging, stenciling and textured looks -- can yield beautiful results. But faux finish painting can be a messy and labor-intensive project, requiring multiple steps and long wait times in between.

Now there's a new way to faux finish -- quickly, easily and without the mess. Finishing Effects Volume IV wallpapers from Waverly4 take less time to hang than pre-pasted wallpaper and are less messy and time-consuming than paint techniques. Not only do the wallpapers deliver the depth and texture of a custom faux finish, they require no water, paint trays, or drop cloths. Believe it or not, installing these wallpapers means simply pasting the wall (yes, the wall!) and positioning the wallpaper on it for an irresistibly pretty faux finish.

This hassle-free wallpaper is installed in four simple steps: Prime the wall; paste the wall; apply the wallpaper; and redecorate. You can use a number of readily-available wallpaper pastes, and because you don't wet the wallpaper, it is lightweight and easy to handle. Once up, the wallpaper is strong and durable with seams that won't separate.

"We've cut the time spent installing wallpaper almost in half," says Debbie Zadnik, creative director for Waverly wallpaper. "I'm not sure which is more exciting: The fact that Finishing Effects is this easy to install, or that it's so gorgeous once it's up."

Indeed, these wallpapers are some of the most exquisite faux finishes in the market today. Ms. Zadnik and her designers carefully imitated ancient stone walls, tumbled tile, marble, old world textures and tea-stained looks, allowing subtle colors and even hints of metallic tones to emerge in each design. The color choices include soft sage, tan and bisque as well as rich charcoals, tea-stained shades and nickel, bronze and silver tones.

The best news is that once you're ready for a new look, removing this wallpaper is even easier than installing it. Stripping this wallpaper is as easy -- and painless -- as taking off a bandage. Stripping all four walls of a standard-size room will take 30 minutes. Just lift a corner, grasp firmly, and each strip removes in one clean motion. Very little -- if any -- paste will remain, and it's not even necessary to re-prime walls before repapering again.

Plus, no matter how many years your Waverly4 wallpaper has been up, your walls will be in perfect condition after you remove it. You won't need to do a thing to your walls before hanging new wallpaper.

"Faux finishes are a clever way to create dimension and depth where none exist, and Waverly4 wallpapers let you get the look without investing a great deal of time and effort," says New York-based interior designer Charles Riley.

Finishing Effects Volume IV wallpapers is available at wallpaper retailers nationwide. For more information, or to find a retailer near you, call (800) 423-5881 or visit www.waverly.com.
