From the blogger: "Want to elevate that standard paint job to the next level? Did you know you can get the look of an expensive grasscloth wallpaper JUST by using paint? Using this linen weave wall painting technique, your ho-hum paint job can be made to look like a beautiful, textured, dimensional luxurious wall covering. We've used this technique in multiple rooms, and it always gets the same response..."I can't believe that's JUST paint!" This DIY is not expensive or difficult, but it will take a little extra time than just a standard paint and run job. This tutorial will walk you through all the DIY details."

This is a very creative technique and I can see where the final,finish looks very classy! An option would be to skip taping it off for the look of a seam on smaller wall sections and just tape wood trim on theses smaller sections to save time! I have used paint with a bit of sand grit in it to give a textured look as well, but this option is much more subtle! Thanks for sharing!
