Denims started out as commonplace working clothes in the late 1800s. Now they are as ubiquitous as ever, some elevated in status to high fashion with high prices. Our busy boarding boys decided to make an accent wall, painting it in faux denim. Yes, it can be done, and it’s not difficult either. And like denims of yore, it’s also not expensive to make!

Watch the video to see how you can make a faux denim wall.

Our boarding boys will show you in the video above and in the following episodes how they transformed their apartment into something tidier and more homey. Why all the DIY home improvements? It’s because little brother will be joining them soon.
