Easy Accent Wall – How to Add a Little Interest

I created this quick and easy accent wall to add a little interest to this boring space for no money!

When we were redoing the kids rec room, I wanted to spruce up the area around the fish tank.  It was boring and drab and I just wanted a little bit of interest here.  Nothing to much, and I was out of money for this remodel.  I needed a little shelf to put the fish food and the internet extender on, but other than that we didn’t much for this space.  So I added a bit of interest with this quick and easy accent wall for no money!

I started with the same thing I did in the rest of the den – scrape and paint the popcorn ceiling, as well as the walls and trim.  I painted the fish tank the same color as the trim.

Next I added the dog door and you can get more info on that here.  We LOVE having a dog door, I highly recommend them if you have dogs. Makes life so much easier!I created this quick and easy accent wall to add a little interest to this boring space for no money! Details at UncookieCutter.com.

Now it was time to add a little interest.  I copied the same pattern I did on the desk.  I drew with a pencil first, starting with the vertical lines.  I added some angled lines using my protractor.  The important part of this is to make sure you use the same angle for each line.  Otherwise it’ll look awful.  Use a level or other straight edge to keep the lines straight.

Once I had those, I added some horizontal lines at the intersections.  Once I had the pattern drawn, I took a Sharpie and the level again and careful traced over the pencil marks.
