Yesterday I posted about wall decorations made from sticky notes. Today, I want to cover the more traditional ways of decorating walls--paint and wallpaper!
If you're a watcher of one of the several home-improvement cable channels, you know about the way standard paint jobs can be embellished with various techniques such as is found in 1,200 Paint Effects for the Home Decorator by Ray Bradshaw [698 BRA], or, Modern Paint Effects: A Guide to Contemporary Paint Finishes from Inspiration to Technique by Annie Sloan [745.7 SLO].
If you're a visual learner, rather than a reader, you can borrow Wall Treatments, an 83 minute DVD covering just about everything regarding wall paint and paper [DVD 747.3 WAL].
If you're not exactly sure what it is you want to do, then I'd suggest browsing one or more of the several dozen Pinterest boards devoted to painted walls and wall treatments.
