This is quite easy and simple. I wanted to try this on my daughter's wall and in the living room. Since a big part of our house are bare walls with plain color wall paint.

Now this is the way to make an impact in a small space! I have been looking for affordable decor ideas to use in my first home and this one is a definite keeper.
