Whether you are a surfer yourself, just enjoy watching the sport or want to bring a beach vibe to a room, consider incorporating surfboards into your wall decor. There are several ways to feature surfboards in your wall decor --- from an actual surfboard to images of these wave riding tools. How you choose to feature a surfboard on your wall depends on your personal taste and the look you want to achieve.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Hang a real surfboard directly on the wall of the room you're decorating. Decide where you want to position the surfboard and screw three wall brackets into the wall --- one to support the front, one to support the centre and one to support the back end of the surfboard. After the brackets are in place, lean the surfboard against the wall behind the brackets.

  2. 2

    Create a painting of a surfboard on the wall. Purchase a stencil of a surfboard and paint colours that complement the design of the room. Decide where you want to paint the surfboard and place the stencil on the selected spot on the wall with painter's tape. Paint over the stencil to transfer the image onto the wall. After the main image has dried, add details with different colours of paint.

  3. 3

    Use a wallpaper border that features a surfboard print on your walls. Decide where you want to place the boarder --- along the top or along the centre of the walls. Lay the boarder on a flat surface and follow the directions for adhering it to the wall. If you have purchased a self-adhesive paper, you'll need to run water along the back of the paper with a paintbrush before hanging it up; if the paper is not self-adhesive, apply wallpaper paste to the back of it with a paintbrush before hanging it on the wall. Work in small sections and use a straight edge to smooth the paper along the wall after positioning it.
