Every middle-schooler wants a space to call their own. With a little imagination and paint, it's easy to create an envy-worthy bedroom with a little creative personalization.
Create geometric or whimsical wall patterns that range from fun to sophisticated to suit your tween's taste. Isn't the lavender wall with the custom monogram above so sweet? I love this idea for a tween's bedroom.
Today we have step-by-step instructions for creating a DIY feature wall like this one or using pattern throughout a room for a more dramatic effect.
Feature Wall Step-by-Step "How-To" Guide:
Measure the walls so you can plan your pattern and colors. You may want to make a drawing to scale. Shapes (e.g., triangles, rectangles) can completely cover the wall, overlap, or be freestanding.
2. Choose the paint colors
Selecting contrasting colors will result in a bold look. Using three or four colors from the same family in a monochromatic color scheme can soften a dramatic pattern.
3. Prep & Mask
Using a bubble level and a long straight edge, lightly pencil your pattern, like big blocks or stripes or personalize the wall with your tween's initial, as shown above.
