Plain white walls are good for one reason: You can cover them up with everything. So when I saw the butterflies at Living with Punks, I knew what to do with the bare wall above my bed but a more mature, elegant version.
Instead of colorful cardstock I opted for silver cardstock with a mirror effect. The light bounces of the reflecting surface and looks beautiful that way. In addition, the cardstock cost me nothing since I recycled one box of Dickmann’s Schaumküsse (German chocolate marshmallows)! A very easy and fast DIY that’s even cheap – how great is that? And don’t you just love the way the butterflies seem to fly away from the peonies?
