DIY Project: Faux Brick Wall

We have a wall in our living room that needs a new look. It's 12' long and 8' high and currently houses a huge canvas print (Ikea, used via Craigslist for 50% off!) behind our TV. I don't want this wall to look too "busy" so shelving is not an option. Shelves + stuff on shelves = clutter = dust = no thanks.

My first choice would be to apply faux brick panels to give our room the feel of an urban loft (without the cost of monthy loft rent). After researching faux panels it has become clear that this idea is well beyond my budget for this project.

Enter second option: paint. If the how-to article can be trusted, we can do this for under $100 and a weekend of DIY time. We shall see. In the meantime above are two inspiration photos I found online to keep my designer juices flowing until we take on this decor adventure.
