DIY painting: Add colour with a feature wall
If you are looking to give a particular room in your house a facelift to make it more homely or interesting to the eye, you do not necessarily need to spend money on new furniture or artwork.
Sometimes the obvious and most cost-effective approach is the best - with this in mind, why not consider a DIY painting job to turn boring into bold?
Feature walls are a fantastic way to break up the monotony of a room's appearance.
Shades of beige and a few old paintings gathering dust can make a small space feel stale and unloved, but with a fresh colour on just the right wall you might be amazed at how quickly the room is transformed.
And since you have elected not to paint the whole room the same colour, you can afford to be a little more daring with your choice selecting a tone that stands out.
One of the most important things to remember before you start is that preparation remains the key to any successful DIY project.
Rather than rush into the job and reach an unsatisfactory result, it is better to take your time, hire the best quality painting equipment and make sure of a professional appearance.
