How often do you fall in love with a viral DIY project or home renovation you know you will absolutely never be able to re-create? A recent bedroom renovation, however, is largely impressing people on Imgur while also appearing to be pretty doable . . . and affordable!
Imgur user JustinPhilalack recently shared a project in which he completely transformed his bedroom with a little paint and the addition of a beautiful accent wall. He initially updated the room by covering its drab color with some chic, navy paint. Then came the real work.
By meticulously measuring the angles and dimensions of one of the walls, he then drew a template onto the wall to indicate where the different pieces of wood would go. He then laid out the pieces per the final template measurements. To achieve an eclectic look, he painted each piece of wood with one of five stains. Lastly, he nailed each piece to the wall and worked his way down until the accent wall was complete.
In the end, the project cost about $150 and took about 20 hours — making it the kind of project you should probably tackle on a weekend.
