Decorating your new apartment or home may leave your walls bare if you’re on a limited budget. You can create padded wall panels in order to make large-scale, inexpensive art. They may be spaced similar to paintings, or arranged within a grid to develop focal points. The panel’s inside base is foam, providing a good amount of soundproofing if you determine to cover a whole wall surface. Power tools and special skills aren’t required to succeed with this project.
