DIY faux brick wall



I love the look of brick – aged brick, painted brick, whatever! Sadly, I don’t have any real brick in my life so the next best thing?…faux brick! We found these faux brick panels at Lowe’s – unpainted I think they scream FAKE brick but with a nice coat of white or a fun color, these panels can add a lovely texture to any wall!

These faux brick panels are nice and lightweight so you could definitely use some in a rental apartment or anywhere you want to add a design element. See more ideas on how to style and design around brick in Decorating with: Bricks.



Prep It:

  • faux brick panel (s)
  • primer (adding primer will make sure your color of choice is bright)
  • color paint of your choice
  • paint brush
  • drop cloth
  • (not pictured/optional) Command Strips: picture hanging strips to keep your faux brick in place. They’re like velcro and won’t damage your walls!

Do It!:

  • Lay your panel down on a drop cloth or outside, paint with primer and let dry. Tip: if you need to trim your panel, see if your local hardware store will trim it for you before you bring it home.
  • Paint the panel with your paint color and let dry – do two coats if needed.
  • Prop the panel(s) against your wall, use nails or Command Strips to secure at the top and bottom and decorate your room around your new, radical wall!

How obvious are the seams between panels? I'd love to see a view of the whole wall!


Love it! What is that blue paint, exactly? I love that shade!


Would i be able to hang art or anything on these walls? If so how?


HI Christina!! It would be best to use something like a Command hook to hang things on these walls! It depends on what you're trying to hang and how heavy/ large it is, but there are so many different styles of stick-on hooks, something should work! XO


I think the seams would stand right out, however I'm thinking of using sanding grout and adding texture to bricks and grout lines..This may add some weight to the panel so you would have to use nails or strong glue..I want to put this on the cabinetless wall above my counters. still exploring ideas...


I must add I would be painting it dry brush style with creams and super light grays
