Renovations and makeovers can be stressful. But completing a masterpiece with your wall paints will feel like the view after climbing a mountain. You do not need to spend several dollars to get a creative, fashionable and well done wall. Here are 7 economical ideas to achieving creative wall art in your house.
- Use tape to create patterns
A roll of painter’s tape will cost you about $6 and you can use it in multiple ways to achieve straight-edged patterns across a wall
- Use contrast wallpaper
After a perfect finish, invest in wallpapers that will perk up your wall with a sharp contrast.
- Paint just one strip of color
If you want a more minimalist look, use a warm shade to paint just a strip of color or a block of it to bring attention to the wall.
- Stop at a grunge feel
Purchase a thick roll of painter’s tape, stick it across a wall and tear it haphazardly to create a grunge texture. Allow the paint to become lighter as you reach the torn half and wait for the paint to dry.
- Write on your walls
After a well done paint job, put your writing skills into work. Take a paint brush and experiment. Write your favorite quotes, poems, paragraphs or lyrics in a contrasting shade.
- Get a Textured roller
You can find a textured roller anywhere online ranging from $3 – $20. Paint a dark shade and let it dry. Use a very shade to build the texture across your wall.
- Use household items to create textures
If you are not interested in a more machine accurate look, find household items to create textures that seem more natural.
