Tuesday Tips – Add large boards


Today I would like to show you some really easy ways of using large boards. 
We quite often see boards used in styling like here,

but why not use them in homes too? 

If you are renting and unable to paint a room, this is an easy way of adding some colour. It’s also easily changed, a bit of a statement and perhaps less daunting than painting a wall or a whole room. 

I’ve used an old table top in our kitchen, but you could use plywood boards, MDF, a large canvas  or even an old door would do. My board is simply leaning against the wall. Boards can of course also be wallpapered or covered in fabric.

In the livingroom I’ve wallpapered two MDF panels. I’ve not added colour, but a pattern.

Boards can even be used to cover up things like electrical plugs as we see below in this photo.

So this is what I would do instead of painting a room a certain colour. I would add a large statement board. It’s inexpensive and very easily changed. It even takes less time. 

Hope you liked this weeks Tuesday Tips! If you have any relevant examples please linke below in the comment field. If you have a statement board please link to it. It was quite difficult to find examples. 

Happy Tuesday!
