How to paint a room in army camouflage

Updated April 17, 2017

Army camouflage pattern was designed to help members of a military blend into their surroundings. An army camouflage room can be great for boys and girls. When painting a wall with an army camouflage pattern, use three or four base colours and stick with them. By painting your walls yourself, you can save money and brush up on your painting skills.

Paint all the walls you want to be camouflage in a light coloured base army colour such as a tan or a sand. Allow the paint to dry and paint a second coat. Allow the paint to dry overnight.

Draw the army camouflage design over the base paint using a carpenter's pencil. The army camouflage design is made up of large circular shapes that connect.

Paint in the shapes you created using the other camouflage colours you picked. Common camouflage colours are dark green, brown, grey and tan. Paint in these shapes using a medium-sized paint brush to stay inside the lines and allow some parts of the wall to still be tan. Allow the paint to completely dry.

Apply a second coat to the new colours and shapes you painted. Allow the paint to completely dry.

Erase any pencil lines if they are visible.


You can use colours specific for whose room it is. Four variations of pink are a great way to decorate for a young girl.
