DIY wall decal makeover : Dress up the blank wall


If you live in an apartment, it is against the rules to permanently affix decor onto the walls. I had the same problem. But there was a huge bare wall staring at me and I wanted to dress up the bare wall. Artistic inspirations can be found even in the everyday ordinary items that we use.
I saw a lot of decals online, and one particular geometric pattern stuck my eye. It was a simple triangular pattern in rose gold color, that brought out the modern look.

I thought why not DIY it. I had a lot of newspaper waste that had the rose gold color sprayed onto it from my dollar store frame makeover DIY. I just cut out those parts that had a good coat of the paint sprayed over and cleaned it a little with some tissue paper, as I had used these newspaper to prevent the paint from falling on the carpet.

I then measured, and cut some triangles. I applied some glue to the other side of the triangle and stuck to the walls. It looks amazing and was surprisingly easy and totally free of cost. It took me jus 15 min to complete this and my wall doesn't look empty and dull anymore.

STEP1:

Take some newspaper that has some spray painted on it already.

The newspaper that had spray paints on them. So i cut Triangles from these paper and stuck them to the wall.
STEP2:

clean the paper with some clean cloth. Then, Measure and cut some triangles and apply glue to the other side of the triangle.
This is how it looks!!
STEP3:

Stick them to the empty wall, and see the change for yourself.!
