FAUX BRICK WALL

I wanted to add some texture to a wall in my kitchen that was not in the best of shape.  I bought textured wallpaper from Amazon and cut it into pieces 2.75 by 7.75 inches.

I then dipped each "brick" into a pan of water and stuck it to the wall, making sure that it was level and evenly spaced.  Mine are spaced just a little over 1/4 inch.  Once painted, minor imperfections will not even be noticeable.

It is pretty hard to get a good picture of the faux brick.  The important thing to me is that I no longer notice the wall's imperfections.

I found the tutorial for this on Pinterest.  Where else?  I think it was genius!

It is genius. I may consider this for some of my imperfect walls.
