Bright & BOLD Accent Wall in Little Boy's Room

46K Views
I wanted to make my son's room a little more playful and cheery, so I added an accent wall! It's definitely bright and bold and is the WOW factor I was looking for!
Time: 1 Days Cost: $30 Difficulty: Easy

Here's how the wall looked before the makeover. As you can see, it was pretty dark, definitely boring, and just begging to be jazzed up.

I wanted it to be colorful but I didn't want to mess with any precise measurements, so stripes were out of the question. I then decided that random shapes in coordinating colors to match the rest of the room would be perfect!
I first created a mockup of my design in Photoshop, then added the painter's tape to the wall where I wanted the gray lines to remain.

....and here's the Before & After once the tape was removed! I just LOVE this transformation, and it definitely brightens the whole room up. And the best part is that it only took me ONE day to complete!

    Nicely done! I like to paint kids room with chalkboard paint. Benjamin Moore will color match in the chalkboard paint product.

    Really really cool! Although I have to say that it would be hard for me to sleep with those dazzling colours! Lol
