Walls with DIY metallic patterns


Metallic accents on walls are a cool way to make plain surfaces more interesting. There are lots of methods for adding shine inexpensively— here are some DIY examples for inspiration. I might need to give these a whirl someday!

I love the idea of using contact paper, especially since I live in an apartment! I'll have to think about doing something like this when we move next!

Thanks for the different posts. I have some metallic paint I got (for free) that I would love to use, especially in my entry area. The problem is the walls in my house are orange peel so just don't know if it would work and still have a sharp line. I will do some more digging around on your handy links.

Those big polka dots aren't me, but I'm kinda liking the other designs! I bet you've been searching for a lot of decorating ideas lately, huh?

Thanks for always sharing these ideas. I find so many good ideas through your blog. The deodorant recipe you shared a few years ago is great, by the way. :)
