I painted an 8 inch border around my room using the black base and silver through drywall tape method. i really liked how it turned out even though i cheated and used spray paint. One suggestion i would give is to cover entirely with the second color and then add texture with the final black, You get a lot more definition that way. Great post!

My bad, I had trouble getting Revver to work in the video mode. So I reposted everything in regular mode, big mistake, no views at all. So I fiddled with it to get the video posting working with Revver. Obviously I figured it out. It just took a little while.

Search out the how to embed videos instructable, the revver code is pretty fiddly...
