My mind works in mysterious ways. It thinks in shapes and patterns and then says, “Can I paint that pattern on the wall with FrogTape?“
More than once, I have jumped up from the sofa and yelled for Grunt Labor to pause the television show so I can take a picture of some pattern/door/wall/what-the-freak-ever that I’ve seen and am sure I can replicate with paint and FrogTape. I’m not even kidding. I’m a freak. #freakflagflyer
I have found patterns to replicate from doors on Scandal, wall art from Vinyl and floors from How to Get Away with Murder.
I’m not right. But if it’s wrong, I don’t want to be right.
I haven’t tried out all my ideas just yet, but here are my favorite wall painting ideas and paint designs that I’m convinced anyone can make because if I can do it, anyone damn well can. You just need painter’s tape, paint and in some cases, a ruler (but not all, because I’m terrible at measuring).
Wall Painting Ideas & Paint Designs
The closet doors in the office at the new house have become a fast favorite of mine. I love, love, love this paint design. In fact, I’m going to be doing a very similar version of it in our master bedroom.
If bright green isn’t your thing, you can easily switch out that hue for another one of your liking. This wall paint design is cane inspired and I only needed a quart of paint for it.
Another favorite. This one is such a simple painting idea. Essentially all I did was create a frame on my wall to showcase the art. Notice how that TV just fades away too?
If you don’t want to worry about measuring a thing and want a dose of fun, this wall paint design is for you. I call it the confetti wall.
The criss-cross accent wall was one of the first bigger wall painting ideas I had. In all honesty, I was shocked when it actually turned out like I envisioned it in my head.
Don’t be scared – this plaid painted table is one of the easiest painting designs around. You need a ruler – but you won’t use it the way you think you will…
Bill’s room is still one of my favorite spaces we’ve made over. The half-black half-white walls are easy to pull off.
Another project from Bill’s room, this vintage laundry hamper makeover got a dose of upside-down triangles – another really simple painting idea.
Slowly, but surely we are getting closer to summer. This painted astroturf rug is great for your porch or patio and helps to add a pop of color.
Do you have any wall painting ideas or paint designs?
Don’t hold out on us! That’s not allowed around here!
