In the States, to smooth out a wall that has seen better days is simple; build a new wall in front of the old wall.

But when it comes to renovation in Paris, size matters.

Every square centimeter of a room is valuable real estate.

Gluing drywall to the old wall to create a flat surface is one solution. Hiring a team of enduit guys to rectify the situation by hand is another.

But one move that is many times overlooked is the ‘Sponge Paint’ technique. With a few Sea Sponges, paint and some odds and ends you are on your way to a whole new room.

Although it doesn’t solve the problem of a lumpy bumpy wall, it is an inexpensive and fun way to ad character and hide imperfections.

And this video has a lot of handy tips and tricks to get you there!
