Boxes are meant for putting things in. But for Kriz, it also means another painting idea. She deconstructed the box and used the corrugated medium in between the liners to paint a textured wall.

Use Paint to Make Textured Walls

Texture is one of the seven elements of interior design, which you can use to make your room look more interesting. The tactility of this element changes the temperature in a room from warm to cool or vice versa. Imagine a sleek living room with marble floors, lamps in metallic shades, an accent wall covered with a mirror. Then you pair that with a soft, sumptuous, plush rug made of a thick pile. By the window, you have an oversized couch which is comfy, cozy and spacious, perfect for snuggling. Juxtaposing those items in one space create the magic of balance. The room becomes soft and warm, and no longer hard and cool.

The biggest surface in your room, the walls and ceiling, can also have texture. While others may opt for wallpaper, or cover their walls with fabric, an easier and cost-effective way to do it would be to use a material that you can cover your roller with to create that design or texture on your wall when you paint.

Our painting tip in this video is to use corrugated paper.

Boysen has a line of construction chemicals called Konstrukt. This is a material that gives excellent surface preparation to your walls, ceilings and floors. Top quality is also a hallmark for Konstrukt, just like it is for the mother brand Boysen. You can paint your walls if that is what you like. However, if you are a fan of the industrial interior look, then you can leave the surface unpainted. Read more about this beautiful home done in a modern industrial style. It has an extravagant view since it is poised on a hill overlooking Manila.

How about bringing the breezy tropical mood into your house with this wallpaper? This can make for a great accent wall in the living room.

Here’s a free painting tip if you want to use wallpaper in your home. Before installing wallpaper, surface preparation  is very important, as critical as it is in painting jobs.

The number one enemy of wallpaper is damp, so make sure the wall is dry and should remain dry. Here are the steps outlined by our technical guru:

  1. Prime bare surface first with Boysen Flat Latex then putty minor imperfections with Boysen Masonry Putty.
  2. Then apply a full coat of Boysen Acrylic Emulsion. This coating acts as a barrier against dampness on concrete walls.

Follow the instructions on the use of the products by clicking on the product names above.

What a dreamy living room! All in white! Only the light natural brown colors from the frames and the pendant lamp add contrast. The wall is clad in upright wood planks that have been painted white. Still you can see the textures of the wood coming through. Nature is welcomed in through that huge glass wall. Picture yourself spending a lot of time here with family and friends.

For this kind of look, you can even used salvaged boards. Or you can follow this DIY painting idea from the newlyweds Carol and Anthony, who made a shiplap accent wall.

  1. Hi, Myboysen,
    Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often. Adding texture to your walls and ceilings can give your home an artistic flair. Leah from See Jane Drill gives you tips on how to make several different patterns with household tools. Watch as Leah adds texture using a broadleaf roller, sponge, stipple brush, smooth trowel, midget trowel, swimming pool trowel, finished trowel, tile trowel, and more. Follow these steps to add texture to your walls and ceilings.

    1) Add water to the joint compound to achieve your desired consistency.
    2) Use a 1/2 inch nap roller or a trowel to apply the joint compound to your wall or ceiling.
    3) Use your desired tool to add the perfect texture

    Thank you for a great post.
