Retro fans love to share their finds and projects on our Facebook page — which is where Pam spotted Jeff and his living room wall project. Jeff started out with a contemporary looking dark red accent wall and with a little paint and some creativity, ended up with a wall decorated with geometric shapes as wall art. Jeff’s geometric wall art idea is a great budget-friendly home decor project for those who have large, blank walls in need of a little pick-me-up.
I decided to “retro” my living room wall a little bit to more match the mid-mod look. The beginning…………..Cover up that dark accent wall. I have found the best thing to cover up a wall — and to use for primers — is ceiling paint. They use the same additives to stick to a ceiling as more expensive methods.
Yes it is, and the matching color circle that is on the right is raised to cover the vent.
What an interesting idea for a wall treatment. I’m guessing that Jeff plans to add some wall art above the sofa to fill in some of the blank space, which would be framed nicely by the pattern he’s painted. Either way, what a project to add some pizzaz to an otherwise plain living room wall. Mega thanks to Jeff for allowing us to share his idea over here on the blog.
Another great idea — why not use the same techniques to paint a pattern like the fantastic laminate accent wall in the living room of the Wilson House? The possibilities are endless!
