With the help of the internet, these days it’s easy to come up with ideas to make your home really stylish and on-trend. You can infuse your style into so many different elements of your home — even how you apply paint to the walls.
It might be a little more work to figure out what you want, but in the end, you’ll have a style that really reflects your taste. Gone are the days of picking out a paint color and slapping it on the wall. There are tons of cool and clever ways to make your home absolutely jaw-dropping.
Here are 3 different DIY painting techniques you can try to take your walls to the next level:
1. Try painting stripes- Stripes might seem scary when you’re talking about putting them on a wall. But they are actually pretty timeless! There are virtually limitless ways to incorporate them into your space, too. You can use thin stripes or large bold ones, or even mix and match! Either way, putting stripes on your wall is definitely a game-changer.
2. Choose some amazing stencils- Stencils are a super fun and fairly easy way to spice up a wall. The great news is, it also looks sophisticated! All you need to do is order the stencil that you really love, then spend an afternoon giving love to your walls. There are so many great patterns to choose from, you might end up doing more than one room. Why not?
3. Give color-washing a whirl- Color-washing is an incredible way to make your walls really speak to you! When you color-wash, you essentially stand with a brush in your hand and scribble the paint onto the wall, almost haphazardly! It takes a bit of practice, but if you can get the technique right, you’ll have beautiful results. Color washing works best when all the colors show through—the base and the brushed layers. It can be achieved by sponge painting or brushing the latex glaze onto walls, too.
Give one of these methods a try! We’re guessing you’ll be amazed by the results.
