Painting Character onto Your Walls

Seeing a new trend pop up on my Instagram feed excites me. I haven’t been this excited for a trend in a while. The trend I’m referring to doesn’t really have a technical name, so I’m calling it “painting character” or “color blocking”. This trend uses paint to create unique shapes and definition on you average walls. Below I will be showing examples of some of my favorite pictures of the trend.

All you need is paint and tape to get started!
