You could go with the wallpaper version….or you could go full-on DIY and save yourself some money AND time!
I may be full of quick and easy projects, but Lord help me, I’m having a hard time getting them posted in a timely manner! The Air BnB project (The Loft at Local Depot) has been taking up lots of my time – it’s so close to being finished y’all! The kid and I have managed to squeeze in some time here and there to just about finish up her room makeover though. It’s about 90% done, like the BnB, but you know that last little bit always takes the most amount of time to complete, right?!
Anywho, here’s our latest shenanigan.
When we first started chatting about her room makeover, she found a confetti wallpaper that she fell in love with. It was adorable, it was also going to take a good chunk of her room makeover budget. The more I looked at it, the more I thought we could replicate the look ourselves without spending as much or having to put up wallpaper.
And I was right.
When I posted this wall on social media after we did it, there were so many people who commented and said, “This must have taken you days to do.” Nope, it sure didn’t. All that “confetti” was on the wall in about 30 minutes. The longest part of this project was painting the wall white for the base color and that wasn’t bad at all!

How to Paint a Confetti Wall
Supplies and Materials Needed:
- Interior White Paint – We used Bit of Sugar.
- Confetti Colors of Your Choice to Coordinate With Your Room. We used: Velvet Curtain, Tropical Trail, Spa Blue and Little Princess all in Eggshell sheens. You’ll only need sample size pots of these colors.
- Full Size Paint Roller and Paint Brush for Your Base Coat
- Small One Inch Foam Brushes
Paint the wall with your base coat of white paint.
Using one of your confetti colors, dip just the tip of a foam brush into the paint.
Tap the foam brush on the wall. Repeat this in a random pattern on the wall.
Reload the foam brush with paint as needed.
Repeat Step 2 with the rest of your confetti colors.
After you’ve covered the wall with all your confetti colors, step back and fill in any empty spots as needed with confetti.
That’s it! Told you it was super easy! If you wanted to add a fun pop of glam you could throw in a metallic as one of the confetti colors.

What a unique idea! Love this!
I think it looks better than wallpaper as you’ve got no seams! Great job!
I love this!!! I wonder if my boys would let me paint their walls like this?! 😉

Great way to eliminate the expense of wall paper and achieve a fabulous result!!! The Circus is certainly growing up…way too fast!!! She has ownership of her new wall by helping – lovely when they actually get to the age where they are more of a help than a hindrance!!

This is so fantastic! I love that this is simple enough that my kid can participate too. Totally doing this with my daughter in her room this summer!
Love it! (and now I want to do that!)
Just love this! The Circus is getting so big 😱. She’ll be doing lol kinds of projects before you know it! Can’t wait to see the Air BnB Loft!

As usual- “Nailed it!”
Cuuuuuuute! What a great idea!
So fun!!! I did glow in the dark stars for my kids when they were little. During the day you could barely notice them, but at night they really did shine! A few years later we switched rooms and made that room the master. Mind you, those dang stars were everywhere on the ceiling and a few on the walls. I used 2 coats of primer/paint and STILL have a light glow from those stupid stars! LOL we have a laugh about it now and then. 😁
Nice project. It looks better this way than on a blank wall.
