I drew on my walls with a Sharpie for the cheapest accent wall, it saved me hundreds of wallpapers and you would never know
WANT to redecorate your home but don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on wallpaper?
Well you might be lucky.
A TikTok user shared his simple DIY hack and you won’t believe how beautiful it looks.
You might think that kids drawing on your walls with a marker sound like a terrible nightmare, but one woman has shown that a Sharpie can be the trick to creating a DIY accent wall.
With just a Sharpie pen and duct tape, a DIY fan created a stunning accent wall and it took no effort and she barely spent any money.
A woman, who controls the TikTok account “neatly.living” shared her Â£ 8 wall with the caption “This Sharpie accent wall is our cheapest yet”.
The video shows his quick tutorial and it’s amazingly simple.
So fear not if you are not good at DIY – this is something anyone can do.
She just places random duct tape crosses on a plain wall – you can put as many as you want and as randomly as you want.
She then takes a black Sharpie oil-based painter’s pen and draws a line along each line of duct tape.
To reveal the end results, she simply peels off the paint, revealing straight, bold lines.
It sounds hit and miss, but it looks great and saves hundreds of pounds on wallpaper.
If you feel confident enough, you can even do it without the tape – but the tape is used as a visual aid to make sure the lines are straight.
We believe the DIY wall is shiny and it is a very unique design that would instantly make any room a little cooler.
It is clear that his hack has impressed many people as it has accumulated over 840.1,000 views.
It has 23.4,000 likes, 103 comments and 635 shares.
