TikTok User Turns Thrifted Frames Into A Stunning Accent Wall

Have you ever stumbled upon a DIY house decor idea on Pinterest and thought, "I could do that, too"? Well, if you have, then you're pretty brave. Ha, ha! I'm a little wary of stuff like that.

But I have to admit — sometimes it does work out. It did for this lady who recently posted her accent wall DIY on TikTok.

She wanted to create a funky accent wall in one of her rooms. But she didn't want to do anything too expensive or permanent.

So she came up with a scheme that allowed her to do it easily and with a reasonable budget.

Let me show you exactly how she did it. First thing's first, she painted the walls in her room a pretty green color.

Then, she went on the hunt to find picture frames of different shapes and sizes.

Of course, she thrifted those to keep the cost down. Then, she just painted them all using the leftover paint she had from doing the walls.

Now she needed to figure out how to arrange all the frames once they go up on the wall.

So she laid them all down on the ground to plan everything out. Once she had the idea, she started putting them up.

To fit the frames properly on the wall, she used push pins.

Then she used a level to ensure everything was straight. Once all the levels were correct, she hammered in the nails, hung up the frames on the nails, and voilà!

Then came the time to make the wall look a little bit more interesting and dramatic.

Megan did so by placing a few strategic art pieces in the frames. Otherwise, the wall by itself would look rather bare. Don't you think?

Here's the final look at the finished wall.

Wow, that's quite the difference, no? Of course, once she posted her how-to video on TikTok, folks started liking it and commenting on it. The consensus was that most people really dug this idea.

Megan received such raving comments on this fantastic decor upgrade.

Most of the people were saying they want to do it too. I'm not surprised, to be honest. It is such an easy idea to pull off, and it looks super cool indeed.

So is this impressive enough for you to consider doing it yourself?

I've got to say once I saw it, I totally loved it. I might actually do something like this in the future when I have my own house.
