Have a wall in your home that makes you snooze? Sometimes we want a little more than paint to transform our walls. Try adding some stone or brick to your accent walls with these DIY projects and tutorials. Make the wall a focal point that has an upscale look, but can blend with almost any style or feel. You don’t have to hire a contractor either!

More on how to install brick veneer from ‘DIY Network‘… This is just another take on the same project, using a slightly different product. It’s always a good idea to read instructions from more than one source… You never know when you might come across that one tip that might make a difference in your specific project!

We love this project from ‘Houzz‘, but it didn’t have a tutorial with it. So we found for you from ‘Instructables’, here is how to build an indoor rock wall… This one is not a veneer project, they used real stones! Great if you want a more rustic look. This tutorial could be adapted to create the look in the ‘Houzz’ project below!

    Can it be applied to a painted cement wall or does it have to be drywalled first? I was thinking this would be awesome for my basement. It is unfinished.

    Could you do the pebbles over existing bathroom tile? Or does it have to be removed?

      I would think if you use the cement board like they did in the tutorial, you could go right over existing tile. But remember, you will have raised the level of the floor by placing it on top of existing flooring. Keep this in mind for clearance of doors, etc… Also, you will need to be able to screw the cement board down to the subfloor. Good luck!
