Faux Brick and Plaster Wall

35K Views
We created an Old World style in this office space by installing a faux brick and plaster wall. You can incorporate this idea in your home as well! Read on to see how we did it!

When we got started, the office was just a boring space with plaster walls. It did have a beautiful wood plank ceiling and craftsman windows going for it, though.

If you are going to attempt something like this, be sure to cover all surfaces as there ends up being lots of dust particles. Also, be sure to test for lead paint! Lead paint is toxic and should not be messed with!

A quick coat of white paint covered the pattern that was on the wall before.

The next step was to adhere faux brick wallpaper in the spaces where the plaster had been chipped off. For a link to the wallpaper we used, visit my blog post.

Apply wallpaper according to manufacturer’s directions! Be sure to smooth from the middle out to avoid any bubbled up areas.

The one roll of brick wallpaper Paula purchased was enough to complete a wall in the bathroom as well as wrap a large pillar in the reception area.

This office space not only got a wall makeover, but we built a reclaimed barn wood reception desk for it as well. Come see photos of that on my blog and more DIY projects for the home! Thanks for reading!
