Incredible Sharpie Projects

Permanent-marker projects are everywhere and that's because they are the cheapest way you can update your home, clothing, and accessories in a unique, artsy fashion. Check out these incredible projects made using Sharpie markers, then get some fun colored markers of your own so you can try them for yourself.

Powder Room with Marker Details

My bathroom has two permanent-marker details: the walls and the mirror. There is nothing cheaper and easier than taking a large ruler and pretty colored Sharpie to create simple fine lines on your wall. The mirror was pretty before, but I adore the extra delicate gold detail over the mint-color cutouts on the mirror frame. You can read more at Cuckoo4Design.

Sharpie Doodle Lamp

Have you ever thought about updating a plain table lamp with a permanent marker? You should because this lamp was doodled on with an oil-based Sharpie marker, which gives it a beautiful custom detail. You can find out more here.

Sharpie Designer Wallpaper

You don't have the money to spend on expensive wallpaper? Then take a look at this tutorial here that was inspired by a beautiful designer wallpaper. And if you don't want to put in the time to give an entire wall this permanent-marker treatment, then try it on a small piece of furniture, which would be the perfect way to give it some chic detail on a budget.

Simple Sharpie Plates

This pretty plate comes from an easy idea -- just add detail with permanent marker -- that you could even do with your children. I certainly love it as an adult, and I love that you don't have to get really ornate to make a sweet statement. Amy of Delineate Your Dwelling shows how to make a simple heart, which isn't just suitable for Valentine's Day. 

Quirky Black Sheep Wall

Sharpie wall treatments are everywhere on Pinterest, but what makes this accent wall different is the unexpected quirky black sheep among all the white outlined sheep. I love this little detail that some people might not even notice because it is subtle. I could also picture it in a fun kid room or nursery on a larger scale. You can find out all the details from Cassie at Primitive and Proper.

For a quick and thrifty makeover, use paint pens to doodle on inexpensive ceramic pieces.
