Mum makes her own wallpaper using copper paint and tape because she couldn’t find the perfect print

A CRAFTY mum decided to make her own stunning feature wall after she couldn’t find a wallpaper design she liked. 

She used copper paint and frog tape to create the stunning effect – and it only cost her £30. 

The mum wanted to spruce up the living room now she had some time on her hands, so rolled up her sleeves and got stuck into some DIY. 

She sourced paint from B&M, going for a sleek copper and navy colour scheme. 

Sharing her incredible transformation on Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, she said: “After seeing all your amazing efforts I went for it. 

“Couldn't find the wallpaper I wanted and had a bit of time on my hands (not much kids are 4 and 6).”

Explaining how she created the look, she added: “Drew my design, copper painted it twice, frog taped, then 4 coats of blue. 

“I finally got the look I wanted. All bought from B&M. 

“Not sure on exact prices approx cost £30 still loads of paint left over for other projects. 

“Now waiting on carpet and new sofa.”

Thousands of people have liked her transformation, asking her where she sourced her pieces from. 

The mum added: “Wow thanks for all the amazing comments.

“Paint Johnstone copper and midnight navy b&m Wood. Light mango wood trade furniture.

“Light. Pagazzi Warrington. Cork mirror handmade (lots of wine was drunk).

“Thanks for the love everyone first time I have attempted anything like that.”

People have claimed she should be an interior design, hailing her feature wall as ‘the best’ they’ve seen. 

Commenting online, one person said: “I thought I was over the frog tape hype but yours is amazing.”

Another wrote: “This is one of the best ones I’ve seen love it.”

A third said: “ Wow that’s gorgeous I was wondering where that was going, all those colours!! I love it.”

Someone else thought: “Lady, you are missing a calling in life, you should be an interior designer.

"You clearly have an eye for it.”

While this person added: “This by far is the best I have seen.”
