Yet, an interiors fanatic has shared an incredibly quick way to update white walls for the ultimate Scandi look – and all you need is electrical tape.

Mum Gabby Woodley explained that she is often asked where she got her arrow wallpaper for her home office and revealed it was actually  electrical tap.

The DIY fan showed how easy it was to achieve at home in a simple step-by-step video on TikTok and the results are stellar.

Gabby started the transformation using a pencil to mark out dots on her bright white wall.

She then measured 11 inches from top of the dot downwards.

Next, Gabby grabbed her electrical tape and cut a "bunch" of five inch strips and overlapped two pieces at a 90 degree angle.

All that's left to do is place the tape arrows over the marked dots and voila! But don't worry if you messed up the placement of your arrows as they're easily removed without leaving a mark on your paint.

She said in the video: "All I did was make some dots on my wall with a pencil and I measured 11 inches from each point of the top of the arrow to the next one.

"Then I cut a bunch of five inch strips of tape and you overlap two piece at a 90 degree angle and you just tape them over the dots.

"And if you mess up they're really, really easy to take off and they're not going to ruin your paint."

In total, Gabby said that the feature wall took her an hour and only one roll of tape.

Her video has received a flood of praise by fellow interior lovers, who joked that would try it over lockdown.

One commented: "I'll do this it's quarantine".

"That's creative and impressive!" another penned. "It looks great".

A third wrote: "I did this on my hallway doors today! Looks so good! Thank you for the idea!".

It seems many have been inspired to take up their own DIY projects while in lockdown, and have been sharing them only for others to see.
