Step by Step: These DIY Geometric Walls are Easier Than You Think!

Feature walls. So hot right now. But why would you stick to just one colour when you can transform your wall into a multicoloured masterpiece? These mums are proving just how easy it is to do just that with these geometric paint projects.

Pretty paint perfection

If you haven’t seen the geometric wall paint trend in action before, allow us to introduce you to it. Below are just a few of our favourite ones, shared on Bunnings Mums Australia.

Geometric walls are especially popular in kids’ areas – bedrooms, nurseries, playrooms – and add a pop of colour to an otherwise dull white wall.

The geometric wall paint project is incredibly cheap and easy to do too. You’ll need a bunch of sample pots, some masking tape and around six hours of spare time – that’s it!

And the results? Beaut-i-ful! Check out some of our faves below.

Thanks to Bunnings’ mum Melissa Chaplin (pic above), we have an easy step-by-step guide on transforming a bare wall into an artwork of angles.

First step – Choose your colours

Pretty pastels, bright and bold colours, monochrome, blues and greens – it all depends on what you want. You can get away with buying sample pots for the different colours which are generally around $5 per pot.

Before you start to mask and paint, make sure you wash the walls and patch up any holes. So important to ensure a nice coat.

Second step – Mask

Once you’ve let the walls dry, mask your area. Start at one corner and let your wall be your canvas.

You don’t have to go crazy with the masking tape. Even just a few different areas looks lovely, like the room below.

Next – Paint!

A good idea when doing the actual painting is to mark out in pencil which colour you want to go in which triangle. That way you can ensure you don’t get a big patch of the same colour. You can do one colour at a time (which is what I would do) or go from corner to corner. Think of it like a big colouring-in project, but with paint.

Wait at least 2 hours before doing the second coat.

Finally, the big reveal

Ensure the paint is completely dry before taking off the masking tape – nice and slow! And voila – so pretty!!!
