Great article with very well chosen pictures. Well done! Waves or a skyline would be a good alternative to the 'mountains' and similar framing effects would work well with a painted floor. Painting 'rugs' to define seating zones etc might be fun.

If a half-painted room features in the £75 diy projects, will the fully painted room feature in the £150 diy projects?

Just stumbled upon this article.........and here’s another paint idea: I recently saw a photo of a simple desk with the wall above it painted in the same color, so that it made the desk and paint look like one, larger piece of furniture. The paint was then trimmed with burlap ribbon and brass tacks. I hope I’m explaining that clearly! It looked great and what could it possibly cost? $30-40? A worthwhile project that could be applied to several small pieces of furniture.
