Slowly but surely spaces are starting to take their claim in our new home! Our living room is a couple projects away from being complete and our dining room is a paint job away from stamping it finished. It feels good to finally see progress starting to happen! I’ll tell ya, it’s crazy how long room makeovers can take when you have two kiddos 3 and under! Something that should take 3 hours can be stretched to 3 weeks but I swear by everything, we may actually have a finished home here soon folks! (Crossing my fingers on that one…) I’ve also taken on the opportunity to do home staging and interior decorating (which I’m LOVING) and I’m itching to share some of those before and after pics with you all! I’m a pure sucker for a good before and after.
I decided to share our fun fireplace wall first before revealing the whole living room makeover. Who doesn’t like a good teaser, right?! This wall is a very basic project that is great if you’re wanting to make a statement or if you’re just looking to make a creative accent wall! Like I said, it’s a simple project so all you need is…
1.) Measure how far apart you would like your lines and gently mark the wall with your pencil on one side of the wall and then the other. (For example: Every 4 inches down I would make a small mark on the wall with my pencil until I reached the bottom of the wall.)
2.) Connect the small markings from side to side with painter’s tape to create “lines”.
3.) Using your paint marker, create your saying. (We chose “You are my sunshine…” because I’ve always sang that song to our kids since they were little babies and we like to keep a kid-friendly vibe in our home. How very sappy of me, I know.)
4. Once you’re finished, rip off the tape and admire your unique accent wall!
I feel like this is such a fun way to add character to a space!
I think this would be ADORABLE in a child’s nursery or even a play room. Someone hurry up and do it! And if you do, don’t forget to post it on Instagram and hashtag #diyconfessions for a possible feature! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with and your twist on this wall idea!
