Accent walls have always been something we’ve wanted to try on the channel but we were running out of space in the apartment! (And we thought you might be getting tired of seeing the same space over and over.) That’s when my sister volunteered a blank wall in her apartment for us to take over, and we did! Her space is very minimalist and not too girly. We wanted to add a bit of colour and bring in some more functionality to the wall. We did a faux wallpaper effect with some copper contact paper cut into triangles and made some strap shelves with some wood and thrifted belts. Full details below along with the video on how we did it all!
