This next picture may shock you because it is kind of ugly. My bedroom is down in the basement and the ceilings are about 7 feet tall, the walls are beige and it gets little to no natural light.
Over time I've changed out the bedding and I decided to embrace my cave like bedroom by introducing dark jewel tone colors. FYI it is the best place to sleep!
What I really wanted to do was add some color to the walls but since I rent I wanted to find a way to do it without painting the walls.
I found three large artists canvases, which can be a bit pricey, but I got them for 60% off.
I painted each canvas with Behr flat paint in Polished Leather. Then I used a stencil that I found on Etsy from CuttingEdgeStencils. I wanted something large to play with the scale of the room.
I painted the stencil in Behr Divine Wine but I used glossy paint. That's why you see a bit of shimmer.
It's really challenging to take pictures in this room since there is almost no light! What I loved about this project is that I can take those panels with me and repaint them and use them again. It added something to the room that was really unique. And what surprised me was when I hung them the darkness made that wall recede and the room felt bigger.
