Our kitchen breakfast bar left a lot to be desired. So when I came across WallArt Wall Decor I was thrilled to have found a solution. With the hardest part of the process deciding which pattern to choose. I was even more pleased that it only took an afternoon to transfrom a previously lack-lustre, two toned wall, into a textural statement.

Once I had determined the layout of my panels, I simply applied glue to the flat surfaces on the back of the panel and gently pressed each one to the wall. For my design to match up correctly it was important the initial panels were positioned as straight as possible. Which, coupled with the use of tiling spacers, meant my end result was crisp rows of squares.

For the panels to fit snuggly into the space I did need to cut some of them with a craft knife. This was the most time consuming part of the process and required a firm and steady hand!

When the glue was dry. I sealed the surface with Resene Waterborne Primer before giving it a light sand and finishing it with a semi gloss paint. To fit with the rest of our living room we painted the panels the same colour as our skirting boards and window sills, Resene Sea Fog.

With one box of panels covering 3m2 for less than $149, WallArt not only transforms a wall into a textural statement, but is a cost effective way to add a splash of personality to any room in your home.
