Hand Painted Borders and Sprays

What a great way to spruce up any room. Hand painted borders and sprays can really do the job nicely. They are easy to do and can be done relatively cheaply. You don't have to go completely around the top, middle, or bottom of a room like you would with a paper border. Painting your border gives you more flexibility to be creative, and allows you to just add it in special places around the room.

I use the Folk Art Enamels for my hand painted wall borders, sprays, and murals. I realize this paint is suppose to be used for glass and ceramic, however I use it on just about anything I paint. It cures within 21 days if you don't bake it. It is very durable and produces a lovely completed project, no matter what surface I am using it on. It also may be put on your surface with any tool you would like to use. You are not limited to using a paint brush.

If you want to get even more creative you could design a wall pattern which appears to be wallpaper, but is all completely painted by hand. Covering over your painted design when you are ready to make a changes, is so much easier than having to remove the wallpaper. You should prime the walls before switching to a new color. Painting a design on your walls is also more affordable than putting out the money you would on wallpaper, especially if you can do it yourself.

Do not be afraid to give it a try. Think of your walls as a blank canvas. If you do not like it when you are finished, all you have to do is paint over it. It really is that simple. So, what are you waiting for?
