This is what the wall over my bed looked like before.

It’s so plain and boring! I’ve struggled to find a headboard that I like within my budget.  Plus, I’m not really ready to commit to anything yet.  I like this option instead!


Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

Hexagon Accent Wall Supplies



Step one:

Paint or stain your Paneled Hexagon Shapes.   Make sure you get the sides of the shape too.  Painting the back isn’t necessary.

Paint or stain the Hexagon Shapes

I used varying shades of grey, white, black and I even poured paint on a few of the shapes to get a black and white marbled look.

The options are endless, and you can match your decor perfectly!  These pretty wood panels would even look gorgeous just left natural if that’s more your thing.   Since one side is paneled and the other side is flat, you can choose which side you want to show.  I am using the flat side of the panels.

Allow your paint or stain to dry completely before moving on.


Step two:

Apply an adhesive mounting tape strip to the back of each panel following the directions specific to whichever brand you are using.  I wanted to make sure that I could remove the tiles if needed, so I chose a mounting tape that causes no damage and is removable.   You can use whatever mounting tape or hanging hardware you choose.

Step three: 

Apply the paneled hexagon shapes to the wall.  Use a level to make sure they are straight.

Hexagon Tiles

Start with a middle hexagon, and build out from there.

Change the size of the configuration, or the overall shape, by moving tiles around in different locations.  Keep it symmetrical, or make it asymmetrical.   There are endless possibilities, and the outcome is going to be beautiful any way you choose to do it!   What colors will you make your hexagon wall?
