Paint a base coat of WOOL .06. Let dry. Using the level， draw your own unique patchwork pattern of overlapping squares. (Tip： We used paint chips to help us map out which colors we wanted where.) Using the roller， paint out the squares in varying shades of blue – WATER .04 and WATER .03 – and let dry.
In a separate container， combine WATER .04 paint and actual water in equal amounts. This will become your glaze. Using one of the large paint brushes， dip into the glaze and make sweeping motions across the wall. Use the dry brush to feather the glaze so that the brushstrokes are not visible.？Keep going until the wall is completely covered. If there are areas that have too much paint on them， take a rag and blot. Use your dry brush to soften the edges.
It's time to finish the look. We chose a dark finished headboard and nightstand from The Joinery's Nehalem collection？as a strong contrast against the patchwork background. To create balance？and increase the cozy factor， we added textural interest via Macrame art by Holly Mueller Home？and the essential Quilt in indigo. Finish it off with a few personal touches like a good book， a charming owl tile and an air plant. Then step back and admire your cool faded denim？wall. There's a reason jeans never go out of style.

Once we had a rough plan and sketches for the Laboratory renovation, we needed to take them to the next level: real, accurately measured, to-scale architect’s plans. How do you afford an architect on a very tight budget, we wondered.
