Trick the eye and delight your guests with these arty projects.
Your DIY masterpiece
Create this easy DIY artwork straight onto the wall with a few Resene testpots and a roll of masking tape. Roughly paint the various colours onto the wall in a circular shape, then place a grid of masking tape on top. Paint the entire wall in a neutral colour – this is Resene Quarter Spanish White. Remove the tape, and voila, your own artwork to wow your guests.
The colours used for the wall art are Resene Rumour Has It, Resene Desperado, Resene Dawn Chorus, Resene Popcorn and Resene Dusted Blue. The floor is painted in Resene Eighth Arrowtown, the front door is Resene Tussock, the vintage ladder is Resene Taupe Grey, the palm planter is Resene Fifty Shades, the urn vase by the door is Resene Hot Toddy and the tall vase under the art is Resene Quill Grey.
