What I Did: 
Uuuugh – I loved the idea of this brick wall in my apartment. I saw this photo and it looked easy enough to do, so I got all the materials (these thin bricks are awesome) opened a bottle of wine (or two, or three – who am I kidding?!?!) and tried to recreate this masterpiece. I followed everything in the instructions – not sure what happened.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Well, I’d line up the bricks properly this time. And maybe skip the wine! LOL!!!!1!! : )

    I don’t think it looks that bad…

    “I followed everything in the instructions – not sure what happened.”
    So… you used actual thin bricks where the original used faux brick wall panels? Yeah, a real head-scratcher, that.

      You must be fun at parties.

    The first one is wallpaper anyway.

    Just say it’s a secret door, and let people try figure out how to open it.

  6. Jlo

    Black grout would have looked better?

  7. Matt

    Just drink another 3 bottles of wine and it’ll look fine!

  8. Sandy

    I actually like yours better, and without the “white wash” too. You did good.

    I hope you asked your landlord first? I deal with tenants every day and if I walked into one of my rentals and saw that it would be straight to the magistrate for an eviction.

    Other than the Sense of Impending Doom I get looking at your wall, I really like it. It may not appear structurally sound, but its quite charming.

    honestly they both look awful.. rule number one of pinterest is if the original looks bad surely yours will too
