DIY Wall Treatments

DIY Painted Plank Wall

If your room is already busy enough with ground decor and furniture, dress your wall up with a DIY painted design. Compared to having a plain, simple color, adding a stenciled or wood pallet design adds texture to the room. If you're looking to add some farmhouse chic vibes to your living room, build a wall of wood pallets. Neutral colored furniture will look just splendid paired with this DIY wall treatment.

Another wall design that's become increasingly popular is stripes. While some may not like wearing horizontal stripes, your walls will look beautiful with that simple painted design! Horizontal stripes tend to make an object look bigger, so this pretty pattern will instantly open your space up. These wall patterns are too good to pass up.

DIY Canvas Painting Ideas

Simple DIY Canvas Art

Whether you're purchasing artwork or making it, displaying it on your walls is the way to go.
