On Trend: Color Dip Your Wall

Try something new with this trending way to bring two-tone color to a room.

A whole room in one color is one way to liven up a room. But why not try something different, something graphic?

But this project will give you a lot of bang for your buck.

Remove the painter's tape at a 45 degree angle to prevent tearing.

This color-dip look works great for a kid's room, a nursery or just about any space you want to inject with a little wit and fun.
