Nancy was recently faced with the challenge of completing a quick and affordable bedroom makeover for a couple who is adopting three siblings. She transformed a guest room into a bright and airy girl’s room in only five days, and while there are plenty of lovely touches in the space, it’s her simple and cheap solution for a wall treatment that really stopped me in my tracks.

Armed with a template of a discontinued IKEA fabric, a wall projector, and a permanent marker, Nancy managed to create a graphic statement wall that would inspire any little girl’s imagination. 

While I love the pattern she chose–which would even work in an adult space, in my opinion–there are so many possibilities that this simple method opens up. We’ve seen this technique used for complicated paint-by-numbers, but this is a much simpler project that you could knock out in a day. And the cost can’t be beat!
