DIY: Transform dull wall into an exciting backdrop using strips of tape and paints

When having time on hand what’s better than using it creatively to your liking? The results can be absolutely satisfying!

1. Buy: Painter’s tape, wall paint in two or three different shades of color

2. Start by: Washing off marks from the wall. If you don’t want the wall’s current color as the base, you can paint the entire wall in a color of your choice.

3. Let your imagination free and stick strips of tape forming a pattern.

Paint the individual parts of the pattern in the color and order of your choice

Do not paint beyond the boundary of the tape, as it acts to separate each part of the pattern
