Woman shares how she made a foliage wall in her bathroom for just £65
If you feel an intense need to snap 100 selfies every time you see a foliage wall, maybe it’s time to make your own.
It doesn’t have to cost the earth. Calsey Banks, a 29-year-old PA from Birmingham, has shared how she added a foliage wall to her bathroom for the grand total of £65.
DIY fan Calsey shopped for artificial leaves and plants from bargain brands such as Ikea, created a frame, and attached her fake leaves with cable ties.
Calsey told LatestDeals.co.uk: ‘Foliage walls have become very popular recently and my plan was to have one in my garden.
‘I found ideas on YouTube and social media.
‘But my bathroom was lacking in something. I couldn’t quite put my finger on what it was until I came up with the idea to make a foliage wall in my bathroom before I make it in my garden.
‘I thought by adding this it would add lots of character and it didn’t disappoint.
‘I didn’t want to get it made by somebody else as I know from looking online they can be very pricey and the area I wanted was quite large, so I decided to do it myself to add my own touch and it would be a fraction of the price.
‘ It cost me around £65 to make!
‘I got most of my things to make it from IKEA.
‘Firstly, I purchased plant squares to create my foliage wall look, then I added my own plants to add my own touch.
‘I added each stem from the plant with cable ties, and once I was happy with the final look I attached it to the wall with large command strips. It was as simple as that!
‘I am so happy with it and it’s so simple and easy to create – anyone could make it.’
Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: ‘There’s nothing like seeing some greenery within your home to add a sense of calm and tranquility.
‘Calsey’s foliage wall is the perfect addition to her bathroom and it gives it that five-star hotel feel.
‘All you need is a blank wall, some artificial plants from IKEA, some cable ties and command strips, and you’ll have your very own foliage wall, which also doubles as a great background for Instagram!’
