Ombre Bedroom Walls
We are in the middle of making over her bedroom. She turned 10 over the summer and was done with her bubblegum pink walls. She loves teal blue right now and anything beachy, so I figured having some ombre blue walls would fit perfectly!

Ombre Wall Supplies:
- 2 similar paint colors
- I used teal blue shades, pick 2 color on a paint swatch sample

- 3 paint rollers
- paint brush
Ombre Bedroom Walls Tutorial
- Start by cutting in your ceiling area with the lightest shade you selected.
- Cut in the base area of your wall with the darkest shade you picked.
- Create a 3rd color of paint by mixing your dark and light shade together in one of your paint trays.
- I recommend working on about a 4-6 foot section (width wise) at a time. You want to paint to blend before it starts drying.
- Roll the top 2/3 of your wall in the section you’re working on with the lightest paint color you have.
- Roll the bottom 1/3 of your wall in the section you’re working on with the darkest paint color you have.
- Now roll the center section with the mixed color you created.
- With a dry brush, using an “X” brush stroke, blend the colors where they meet.
- Blend, blend and blend some more where they meet. I went with the technique of going up and then down… blending lighter and then going into the darker and bringing it up into the lighter shade and then back down.
Here’s my cheat sheet…
The lighter shade of blue paint we used is Hawaiian Sky and the darker shade is Half Moon Bay.
This process does take a little more time than painting just one color, but once you have all your supplies/trays set it moves pretty quickly.
But the results are SO worth it!!! Have you wanted to try the ombre paint job on a wall?
