How to Hide a Wall Blemish

How to Hide a Wall Blemish

If you have a house full of kids, or you just rented a crappy beat-down apartment, or a recent struggle in your living room left you room with new scars, you’ll probably have lots of blemishes, scuffs, scrapes, nicks, and chips in the walls that may need some help.

Little dents here and there may not be a problem, but what do you do when those little bruises become large ones?  Installing your new easy snap-on baseboard heater cover can only do so much to make your home look clean and refreshing. Unless you want your place to look like a crack house, you may want to find a way to cover up those eyesores and wall imperfections.

Here are a few ideas you can try:

Picture Frames

Never underestimate the effect of a well-placed picture frame. For smaller nicks and scrapes you can easily place a picture of your family over the affected area. If the damage is larger, you can always start buying modern art painted on great canvases, what will cover a larger area.

New Paint Job

Or, you can try to repair the damages by filling in small holes with spackling and re-painting the wall. This will make the walls seem fresh and new, and less run-down. For larger holes, you can cut away a square of the drywall and replace it with a fresh piece, held on by wooden planks added to the frame inside the wall, then use self-adhesive mesh patches to hold it into place, and more spackle. Then you’ll want to sand and re-spackle before re-painting the wall.

If there are too many blemishes to count, and the wall seems a lost cause, it might be wise to consider knocking it down and starting over. Or just expanding the room.

Hanging Decor

If you don’t have any picture to hang, you could try hanging something else. Be creative. Find something that speaks to you specifically. Whatever it is, a vinyl record, a wooden shoe from Holland, a set of medieval swords, a tiki mask, an authentic Native American headdress, a neon bar sign, a dream catcher, a Mayan calendar, this cool sunburst mirror, or shelving like these honeycomb shelves, it might make a really cool wall furnishing. Give it a try.


If the blemish is lower to the ground, than a picture frame of other hanging décor may not look right. In this case, you can use furniture to block the splotch from sight. A couch, a table, a stand, a bookshelf, a TV, a toy box, a treasure chest, a standing mirror, or a mini fridge would all be excellent choices of things to put in front of the ugly blemishes on your wall.

Lamp or Vase

As a last resort, if your night stand or table isn’t tall enough to hide the blemish, you can always place an elegant lamp or vase or other object in display on top of it. The more bizarre the object, the more it will surely draw your guests’ eyes away from the imperfection on the wall, so go crazy and have fun.
