Creative Wall Painting

The color of your house and rooms can tell a lot about you and your personality. The room paint can influence not only in the decoration but even in the mood of its residents and bring feelings as calm, anxiety, attention and hunger. If you are not happy with the color of your room or if you want to change it for a better one we will give you some ideas of how to make a creative wall using paint and simple objects and tools.

Painting a wall requires patience and ability. Before starting your work it is important to protect the floor and other parts of house as windows and doors (you can use newspapers and tapes to do this). Another important step is checking if the wall is smooth and with no dust. To cover some imperfections and holes you can use a bit of spackles (after it dry you must sand the patches).

Prepare the paint as it is as explained in the can and cover the wall using a roller paint and a tray (never soak the roller directly in the can). Now, you are ready to put into practice these creative ideas to make your wall unique and modern.

Wall Stamp

You can use many different things to stamp your wall. From leaves to professional stamps, they will bring an innovative look to your house and give an upgrade in the decoration.
