This is what I did to my kitchen wall a few weeks ago… I covered it in cigar boxes!!
I have a tiny kitchen, so I thought I would dress it up!
I used the back side of wall board, it had a weave pattern on it that was made with fibers. Then I spray painted them to look like cement. I tried to line up the boxes in relatively straight lines, but they were all different sizes, and my walls are no longer straight. I love the texture of it all though. I got all the cigar boxes for free from the casino.
This is what happens when you live alone and have no one but cats to entertain you!!!
