DIY Sponge Wall

Updated: Mar 13, 2023

When my mom decided she wanted to make her playroom closet into a little nursery for the grandkids, I knew I wanted to help!! We wanted to make it feel cute and complete without doing or spending too much. I knew this would be the perfect place for a sponge accent wall like I had seen in my friend Jess’ home ( It’s like getting the look of wallpaper for a couple of dollars! Win!!

We decided to leave the shelf in the closet and use it for baskets and decor so we chose to only do the sponge wall on the lower portion. I got my sister to help me!


  1. sponges

  2. paint

  3. scissors

  4. paper plate or paint tray

We started by cutting the shape that we wanted out of the sponge. This took us a couple of tries to get it right. I wanted a shape that resembled a simple flower. You can also choose to leave the sponge as is and use the side of it like Jess did in her daughters room (seen below).

Once we got the shape looking the way we liked, we poured some paint onto a paper plate. We used my very favorite paint color, Pigeon by Farrow and Ball. We decided to “eye ball” where to put each flower on the wall rather than measure or use a level, it worked great for us! But we were working in a small space. A large wall may be more difficult to keep straight.

We just began placing the sponge on the wall in a pattern until we finished! Simple as that and the room was completely transformed.
