After some years thinking what to do with the walls here, I decided to paint them instead of wallpaper them. I used water-based paint. I also upholstered the old school chair with a vintage fabric. So Happy with the result!

    wow, what an incredible end result! 🤩 How long did it take and how did you decide on colors?

    Just a tip: If you edit your post and add your photos using the "upload image" button instead of the "paperclip" icon it will show a preview of your image and help more people see it!

    Thank you for the tip! I'll do It that way next time. It took me a whole weekend. About the colors, I usually like neutral tones, so, in the beginning I planned to paint them all in the sand tone. But when I started to paint I thought about adding some colors (my favourite ones) to match the rest of the decor and make it a happy place.

    I love this! I've also done the painted wallpaper look, but I really LOVE this one! I'm curious how you got the lines so straight? We're moving soon and I want to overhaul

    Wow!!! What an incredible job! Do you know what the paint colors are offhand?

    What was your process for this? It looks like it took a ton of work and time! It's so gorgeous. I'm impressed!!

    Here you can see how it looked before and the process. I just started with the first row and continued... As the idea was not meant to be an exact pattern, there was not pressure to make it look perfect. After I painted some squares, I stepped back to figure out the rest and so on. It was time-consuming but not too difficult. I used water based paint: chalk paint and acrylic paint I had from other projects, so budget friendly!

    This is just so fun! I'm inspired. Sometimes choosing wallpaper can be so overwhelming. Going to consider trying this!

    @Anuca, how did you keep the paint squares so straight and level? did you use tape first? Or any lines?

    Thank you, I did not use tape or lines, just the same paint brush to try to make them as similar as possible, and that's it

    Two different perspectives of the same space. I started to paint the squares here, in the narrow parts, this way it was easier to continue.
