Ingenious Ways to Spruce Up Walls
There’s no such thing as hassle-free painting. It’s a messy, fumy, and time-consuming project. These ideas will dress up your home’s walls without using a lick of paint. Each one will also stylishly hide unsightly eyesores like holes, dings and dents.
DIY Wall Tapestry
Wall tapestries aren’t just for college kids. While they do dress up a dorm room, they’re also a chic bohemian décor staple that warm up cold rooms.
The one above was made using a canvas drop cloth and permanent markers. How much does this idea cost to create? You can pick up a 9-foot-by-12-foot drop cloth, made of machine washable cotton for $20. Permanent markers usually cost less than a buck each.
Create a Post-It Note Masterpiece
Yep, this colorful mural of Kanye West was made using Post-it Notes in colors from the Electric Glow Collection
. It was created by two roommates, Emily Duda, and Jamie Accashian, using just the little sheets of paper. How much did this project cost? While we’re not sure how many Post-its were used, we do know a 14-pad pack costs around $20.
Turn Your Walls into an Inspiration Board
You can create an inspiring wall covering that you can update whenever the mood strikes using pages from magazines and your sketchbook.
But don’t reach for the transparent office tape when it’s time to hang it up all. Instead, use colorful washi tape as shown. It has better sticking power and adds pops of color.
