Well hello there! Long time no see :)
Let's catch up with this little guy...
"But you're a renter!" you might exclaim. That's right, I am. That's not paint my friend, it's ELECTRICAL TAPE. About 15 rolls of it to be exact. It's holding up beautifully so far and don't worry Mr. Landlord-it comes off clean with a little heat from my blow dryer.
(excuse the glare! my apartment has terrible lighting)
It's really one of my favorite projects so far! It's in our living room, the first room you enter in the house, and it just makes such an impact. It's simple but modern and unique. What a great way to spruce up other wise boring white walls, without paint!
As with everything I do, it was a super inexpensive project. I picked up the electrical tape at Menards in a 5 pack (on sale!). And the process what actually very simple, just a little tedious. Netflix helps :)
Here's a night shot:
And up close:
you can see the individual strips of tape this close up!
I just very carefully cut around the outlet:
And that's it! I love it, I think it makes a great accent wall and I can see it being done so many different ways! Electrical tape comes in many different colors and I think a smaller wall or different pattern would be just so cool. What a fun and temporary way to make your room POP.
Have a great one!
