Copper wall sheets come in a variety of sizes but the most popular size is 16-by-16-inch square. Many times, the copper sheets have a decorative engraved pattern on them but the sheets are available plain as well. Decorating with copper wall sheets can be used in nearly any room.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Damp cloth or sponge
- Copper wall sheets
- Finishing nails
Determine exactly where your copper sheets should be placed. Common decorating areas are along the back splash areas of the sink, stove or counter. Or you can cover an entire wall in a room to create an accent wall.
Ensure that the wall is clean and free of dust by wiping over it with a damp cloth or sponge.
Lay the copper panels out so that they are easy to get to. The most popular brands of copper wall sheeting have adhesive already applied on the back. Remove the protective coating from the back of the copper sheet and press the panel against the wall in the proper place. Continue pressing the copper wall sheets against the wall until you have completed your design.
Complete your project by hammering small copper-coloured finishing nails through the copper wall sheets. Place nails at the corners of the copper panels or along the edges at six-inch intervals.
