CREATE IT YOURSELF MAKEOVER & DECORATE ON A BUDGET
21 June 2013

What’s usually the case when you move in – is that all the readily visible areas are the first to be decorated / renovated. Whatever budget is left for more personal/private areas usually ends up pretty slim. Let’s learn how to inject some personality into bedrooms while on a budget.


When you can’t decide between two colours

One solution to the dilemma of choosing your final colours – is to make the best of both worlds! There is always a compromise – and pairing up colours in stripes will create a fun effect but also add the effect of lengthened space in your room.


 

Here’s a Step-by-Step guide to achieve this look:

1. To be safe when choosing colours, always go with contrasting tones

2. Start painting your base layer thoroughly. Wait for it to dry (2hrs)

3. Mask your wall & start painting alternate colours.

4. Vertical stripes create an illusion of height!
