4 Ways To Decorate A Wall

Decorating techniques that will spruce up a boring blank wall 

Metallic circles 

Add a polished touch to a dark coloured wall using faux stainless steel PVC film. Cut film into different sized circles then remove the backing
and apply to the wall in random positions.


Timber blocks

Display vases and ornaments on cubes cut from a length of square timber. Mount cubes on a wall using toggle hooks and use Command Picture Hanging Strips to mount additional decorative blocks.
