Check out this simple and easy wallpaper hack, inspired by Resene Wallpaper Collection design 34244-2 and 34244-3. All it takes is a kitchen sponge.
You will need:
Prep: Paint the background wall colour. We used Resene Quarter Friar Grey.
Step one: Mark a half-circle out of two or three sponges, using a bowl or plate as a template. Use more than one sponge to create a variation in texture over the patterned wall.
Step two. Draw a grid of pencil lines on your wall using the ruler, level and pencil to match the height and length of the cut sponge.
Step three: Cut out the sponges.
Step four: Brush the paint onto the sponge. If you dip the sponge in paint, it will pick up too much paint.
Step five: Using the pencil grid as a guide, press the first sponge randomly over the area you are decorating. This way you get a mix of texture from the various sponges. Repeat with the other sponges, filling in the spaces.
Step six: If you need to touch up the pattern, use a ripped piece of sponge to dab on the paint until you are happy with the look. Rub out the pencil lines.
If you love the half circle print look but don’t have a spare wall, try this easy artwork using potato print and canvas.
