Below is a picture of my office. Do you want to know how to create this wall in your home for CHEAP with a capital C?
As you can imagine, me and painter’s tape, yeah we are BEST friends. I can’t live without her lately. One roll of painter’s tape costs around $6.00 at Home Depot.
I ALWAYS check for “OOPS” paint when I go to Home Depot. These are paints that someone has returned and Home Depot sells them for $5.00 a gallon. I lucked out and found a scrupulous blue Ralph Lauren gallon of metallic paint. And if you plan to only paint one wall…why pay full price when you will only need 1/2 a gallon anyway!?!?
I then created the leaves using the same concept I shared with you earlier in this post. I covered a piece of wax paper with the tape, cut out the leaves, and then stuck them to the wall.
I had to be careful that the edges of the tape were pressed firmly against the wall.You can then use paintable caulk along the edge of the tape..which will you give you a nice clean, crisp line with no touch ups needed when you peel the tape off.
My cute hubby ended up painting the wall for me while I was out of town. What a guy, huh!?!?
Here is the final result. Turned out SAWEET didn’t it!?!?
There are so many ways you could go with this. A reader wrote in and said she traced flowers off her little girls bed spread and panited those on the wall…the possibilites are endless…If you do this project PLEASE send us your finished result..We love to see what others creative minds come up with.
