Sponge Paint On
A great way to add some creativity into your living space is by having an accent wall. While you can accomplish this with some wallpaper, you can easily add interesting textures on your own without paying for a pricey wallpaper.
Marble-style paint looks upscale and is easy to accomplish. Mix acrylic and latex paint, one in the color of your choice and the other in white. Next, dip a sponge into the paint and use it as a brush to create the marbled look.
While you can add a batten and board pattern in any room, a great way to add elegance to your home is to add one into your entryway. They say first impressions are the lasting ones, so why not wow guests with this piece?
A batten wall panel can cover any unsightly seams in the wall and will automatically make your home look more upscale than before. While it is usually made of wood, you can get creative and experiment with metal or even fiberglass.
