Quick Project: Easy Wall Art

Here's an easy way to dress up a plain wall, or add a feature to your bed, using plywood squares.


You don't need to spend a fortune to turn your bed into a focal point. We used plywood squares and stuck these onto the wall for a striking headboard that makes any bed a feature.




4mm or 9mm plywood squares cut to 300 x 300mm

White or coloured chalk

Pattex No More Nails adhesive

Spirit level

Tape measure and pencil











1. Using your tape measure and chalk, measure and mark the height at where you want to start the wall art. The one shown here is 550mm from the floor. You will want to design yours to allow for the height of your bed. Now mark at 430mm intervals for 3 rows. You can increase the height if you wish.



GOOD TO KNOW: Use a spirit level and chalk to mark the horizontal lines. You will use these as a guide to ensure your plywood squares are straight and level



2. On the back of each plywood square apply a thin bead of adhesive close to the edge. Firmly press the plywood squares onto the wall - using your chalk lines as a guide - and repeat until your wall feature is complete.
