    Want to design a beautiful nursery or kid’s room on a budget? Go buy a Sharpie Paint Pen!

    These easy-to-control crafting pens come in multiple sizes and colors and can be purchased at your local craft store. You can even buy metallic pens! (Perfect for adding a little glam to your project!) The cost? A whopping $5! That's right, folks. With a steady hand and a little patience, you can create a stunning feature wall for less than the cost of your regular latte. It’s a DIY’ers dream come true!

    Have a redecorating itch? Unlike traditional pattern work, which often requires multiple coats of paint to cover, this easy-on paint method is also easily painted over. A single coat should do the trick, making future updates a cinch. Just be sure to opt for water-based Sharpie markers. They work just as well as the oil-based variety but are easier to cover up. If you make a mistake, just paint over the error and try again. Easy!

    Ready to get your Sharpie skills on? Get inspired with these 16 beautiful Sharpie art wall ideas!
