I've always had a crush on those old school glitter ceilings. You know the ones with the popcorn ceiling that had flakes of gold or silver glitter? Well of course I just had to have some kind of glitter bling going on in the camper, but how to do it?
There was this pin all over Pinterest about just dumping a jar of glitter in paint to make a glitter wall. After much research that pin was deemed bogus. Dumping a jar of glitter in paint would just coat the glitter. Then I discovered Valspar paint crystals. These paint crystals are used to make the glitter effect when painting faux granite. You can buy them in gold or silver.
Since I was painting the ceiling of a tiny camper, I only needed a quart of paint. I used Behr teal ice. I happily dumped two bags of paint crystals into my paint can (I wanted it to be real glittery) but soon realized there wasn't enough room to stir it up! So I had to dump the paint into the pan and stir it up that way.
I really like how the glitter ceiling turned out. It's subtle and it sparkles when the light hits it. I still need to buy and install the air conditioner and I'm currently finishing out all the white trim work. I'm also ready to put the window screens back up. Then it will be time for the floor.
