Transform Your Walls

7 Ways to Make Your Bathroom Appear Bigger

All white is getting to be a bit played out, don’t you think? Instead of keeping all of your walls white, why not make at least one accent wall (or maybe a few)?! Having that one wall that just stands out and makes a statement can really transform the vibe of your space. Sometimes, all white can feel too clean or too professional, so add a little bit of personality and character to your space by putting a dash of spice onto one of your walls. How exactly should you add this creativity to your walls you ask? That’s exactly what you have us for! We have a few cool and crazy ways to add some fun to your wall space that we’re sure you’ll fall in love with!

We know that ombre effect has been pretty popular in design and beauty recently, so why not bring that trend into your home as well?! If you’re a fan of the ombre look, then this idea is perfect for your wall space. Use wood and paint to create this ombre chevron print on one of your walls to bring in a bit of creativity and style. For this project, you will need wooden pieces that will need to be cut into slanted rectangles and paint, the color of your choice. Then, you will have to decide on what the size and exact shape you want all of your shapes to be so you can make your own stencil to make sure that the painted shapes are precise and consistent. Once you have all of your supplies and your plan is all mapped out, you can begin assembling your wall! After this, the rest is pretty much self-explanatory. Pin up your wooden pieces to their designated place on the wall, and then, start painting! Before you know it, your new ombre-chevron wall will be a completed masterpiece!

Our next project is going to be easier but requires a little bit more precision and attention to detail. You’re going to have to be patient with this one if you want it to turn out just right! For this design, we are going to expand the paint to the ceiling for a visually appealing effect. The paint will look neverending and add a unique twist to your space! It will definitely be a great conversation starter that’s guaranteed to catch everyone’s attention. It’ll be the talk of the room! This project will take some time and a lot of work, but it’s definitely worth it! To begin, you will need painters tape and a few paint colors of your choice. You can use a few colors or a whole rainbow of colors. It’s completely up to you! Once you have your colors picked, all you have to do is line up the tape and get started!

Rock The Honeycomb Treatment

Back to School with Organized Style

If you’re sick and tired of seeing chevron, polka dots, and stripes, why not try a honeycomb pattern?! The honeycomb pattern is basically a cluster of hexagons all connected together. If you’re attracted to organized shapes and patterns, we would highly suggest this design for your wall space. This wall treatment can be completely personalized with colors and technique. There are a number of ways that you can mix it up and make the design unique while still keeping the honeycomb theme. No matter what you choose, your honeycomb design will be entirely your own and help your personality stand out in your space.

To begin this project, you will need to take a trip to your local hardware store or Home Depot and purchase wood pieces. This wood will need to be cut into pieces that form a hexagonal shape. You can choose to paint the wood either before or after they are cut. You have to make sure that your cuts are precise and consistent, because all of the pieces need to be the same length and thickness. Once all of your cuts are complete, they should look like little arrows on both sides. Each side of the wood piece should come to a point. Once you have concluded that all of the pieces are done correctly, you can start their placement! Place the pieces onto the wall, and connect them into a honeycomb shape. Tape the hexagon onto the wall to make sure all of the pieces are leveled and your placement is correct. Once this is done, you use a nail gun to secure the wood to your wall. Putting one nail in the center of each piece should do the trick. Then just continue to use your painter’s tape and build off from the hexagon you just built. Now comes the fun part! You can choose to paint the inside of your hexagons or just paint the wood pieces. Whatever you choose, you can make the design all your own with just a bit of color!
