Since I was about two, my bedroom has been the same baby-blue color. I remember one time I tried to take charge of my own redecorating process at the ripe old age of six and painted all my walls with orange fingerpaint. Long story short, that was the last time I tried to make any major changes to my room.

Well, as I get older, I think I'm finally catching the design bug. But when your artistic abilities are equal to that of a toddler (still), my options are a bit limited. Thankfully, Redditor RandyDandy61 just completed a cheap, yet effective accent wall that brought new life to his bedroom. It looks so simple, even I might attempt something similar.

Like any DIY project, it began by gathering all the materials.

Drawing the template on the wall allowed him to better visualize the design. Labeling the pieces would prove to be a big help during the staining process.
