**We received the 3D Wall Panels for installation and review. No other compensation was given. All opinions are honest and belong to us.**
3D WALL PANELS
Have you ever heard of 3D Wall Panels? I had not either. Now, I definitely seen textured walls and always wondered how to do that. They are quite a conversation piece and add so much character to a room. However, I always thought this type of wall covering is very difficult to install.
CSI Wall Panels has a large selection of wall panels for your interior design needs. We received one box which covers 27 a square foot area. The panels are unfinished and will need to be painted. Okay, don’t start freaking out about installation. I had the same fears. I am not a contractor nor do I have any construction experience. Surely the installation would be well beyond my skill set. Wrong!! They have a wonderful installation video on Youtube that gives detailed instructions in language I understood.
3D WALL PANEL HEADBOARD
Well, when my daughter decided she wanted a modern piece for her head board I thought these 3D wall panels could make a great DIY head board. With a little thought and preparation the wall panels became a beautiful, contemporary wall piece for my daughter’s new room.
3D WALL PANELS AND EASY INSTALLATION
We found the installation video on Youtube and understood exactly how to build our wall. The video said to use epoxy adhesive, but we were not sure if this would be a permanent fixture with my daughter going to college in a couple of year. We used 3M double sided tape and it worked perfectly. My husband squared the area that we were to place the 3D wall panels. He then hung them in a 3×3 pattern on the wall that would be directly above my daughter’s bed.
PAINTING 3D WALL PANELS
The tiles come unfinished, which means painting them is up to you. My daughter wanted hers a blinding bright white. I painted on the initial coats of paint and let them dry before installation. After my husband attached them to the wall I rolled the entire wall making sure to fill in the gaps between the panels. A roller with a fine surface seems to work the best, especially if you want the surface very smooth.
COMPLETING OUR 3D WALL PANEL HEADBOARD
When the 3D wall panels are hung and painted it is now time to turn it into a headboard. My husband cut pieces of white pine into a frame and nailed it around the squares. Maddie wanted a very sleek look so we went for a simple boarder. However, you could get creative here. You could opt for wood, metal, or plastic framing and the color options are also unlimited.
Overall, the CSI Wall Panels were easy to work with and hang, I think the panels changed the look of my daughter’s room without spending a lot of money. If you are interested in making a headboard of your own or putting the 3D wall panels on an entire wall head over and check them out. You can also find more design ideas on their facebook, pinterest, and twitter.
I think my design project turned out pretty good, especially considering I have very little construction experience. Do you think you would like to work with 3D wall panels one day? What interior design ideas do you have for the panels?
