Putting some pizzazz into your fences and walls with DIY!
Whether you are an artist, have an artist within, or you have a home full of little, or more adult-aged children, you will love the DIY ideas in this article for bringing a sense of opulence, a sense of drama, and eye-catching beauty to your fences and walls that will have even your enemies asking you to visit your home for some tea.
You can do this yourself – DIY! Here’s how:
1. Adding Your Own Individual Art to Your Fences and Walls
Adding your own individual art to your fences and your walls is a great way to personalize your environment. There is no such thing that only some people can paint, just as there is no such thing that only some people can dance. You do not need to be Leonardo Picasso to add your own special flair to your fences and walls with an artistic design that speaks to you.
Perhaps, you made a trip to Spain in your lifetime, even the South part of Spain, and you cannot ever forget how beautiful the view was when you were on the top of the Rock of Gibraltar when you were there. Well, life gets busy and there is always work to be done, meaning it is not always easy to just pack up and go back to Spain, even for a visit, because your bills do not pay themselves. The inexpensive and fun way to bring a piece of Spain back in your life, that you can view each and every single day of your life right from wherever you are, be it Long Island, or Atlanta, Georgia, is to even take a small part of your wall or fence, and paint the scene that you remember from the Rock Gibraltar in Spain.
This also works even for weight loss motivation! Imagine you have a dream of a figure that you want to be, naturally, without plastic surgery, and you are at that age when it is more challenging to take that kind of weight off. One of the best ways to motivate yourself is to paint a realistic picture of what you want to look like, and you can proudly display that besides a piece of your wall beside your mirror in either your bathroom or bedroom.
2. Using the Urban Method of Graffiti for Fences and Walls
Graffiti, beautiful graffiti, has become so popular right throughout America, that there are people who are professional graffiti artists. If you have seen a lot of graffiti that you like, it is as simple as a trip to a home store or an art supply store in order to purchase spray paint cans and paint your walls or your fence. It’s your property – you have the freedom to make these choices.
3. Getting the Family and Friends Together to Paint a Mural
A lovely mural of paintings of carnation flowers, and daffodils, or a lovely forest scene is a wonderful bonding family project or a project with friends, that would make a complimentary visual display to the walls of your home, or for the fences outside of your home.
4. Adding Some Geometric Designs
You can go to an art supply store and purchase some beautiful stenciling kits that will help create the structure that you would need to paint geometric designs on your fences or on your walls. You can even also purchase the paint at the art store, or you can also purchase the paint at a home store. You can even use spray paint to the do the same job and the spray paint would simply give the look a more geometric graffiti artistic look in comparison to using paint.
5. Adding Fabrics like Black Velvet
Depending on how enclosed your fences are, but definitely you can do this with the walls in your home, you can add fun fabrics to your walls that you can find at a fabric store, such as Ashanti printing, or Asian-inspired prints, Aboriginal and Native prints, Spanish designs, Nordic designs, and a whole lot more! Using anything from leathers, even faux leathers, to faux furs, to black velvet – you can have a lot of fun with just using some removable glue and pasting these fabrics to your walls to create an opulent elegance for the long term, or even for a short term experience with a special friend.
