Above: To make an indoor trellis similar to the one Agata made for her bedroom, you’ll need supplies:
- Thin wood strips (such as Pine Moulding available in a 96-inch length from Home Depot; $5.92 apiece)
- Metallic paint
- Painter’s tape
- Sand paper (optional)
Above: After measuring your wall, calculate the length of of the trellis and cut three three strips of wood moulding to equal lengths. For step-by-step instructions, see Passion Shake.
Above: Drill two holes at the ends of each piece of wood. Sand the edges of the holes (optional) before threading the twine through the holes.
Above: Knot the twine to keep it in place.
Above: Add a dash of glamour by painting a section of wood. Use painter’s tape to mark area and then paint it with metallic paint such as Brushed Bronze Metallic Paint by Martha Stewart; $2.06 for 2 ounces from Home Depot.
Above: Drape a climbing vine, such as a philodendron or an ivy, over the trellis.
Above: For more permanent decor, train a potted vine to grow up and over the trellis.
Above: “It’s such a simple addition, which totally changed the atmosphere of the room adding freshness and a dreamy feel,” says Agata.
