Our clever wallpaper hack
duration: 0:0:20

Bold and beautiful, the ethnic-style stripes for this feature wall were inspired by Resene Wallpaper Collection design 377133.

You will need:

  • Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen in Resene Nero – enough to do two coats on your wall
  • Resene testpot in Resene Double Sea Fog
  • Resene testpot brushes
  • Artist’s brushes
  • Paper, pencil, ruler and level

Prep: Paint the background wall colour. We used Resene Nero.

Step one. Mock up on a piece of paper how you would like the stripes to sit and the thickness of each one, using our finished wall as a guide.

Step two. Using the pencil, ruler and level, mark out the stripes.

Step three. With the Resene Double Sea Fog testpot, handpaint the stripes using brushes with different thickness.

Step four. Leave to dry and then touch up any stripes that need to be thicker or have a stronger line. It doesn’t need to look perfect – in fact, any imperfections give it an authentic, arty look.
