Whats up and Completely satisfied Monday!!! I’ve been engaged on this put up for some time, however life continued to get in the best way – however I needed to share a how-to on including this huge checked accent wall, since checkered sample is so fashionable proper now! It is rather doable, and also you solely want just a few vital instruments!
What I wanted:
A laser degree – I’d say this isn’t needed, but it surely made this challenge a lot a lot simpler.
A ruler – I desire these wooden ones
quite a lot of blue tape!!
brushes and rollers
To start out:
First I measured my wall dimension in full, and divided up the squares into the width that I needed. I went with 14 X 14 inch squares. You then must tape the squares – I began by taping horizontally, after which moved on to vertical. So as to tape issues, you want to account for the TAPE SIZE into the complete sq. dimension, so you’ll start by creating rows 1, 3, and 5 the proper dimension, after which add the dimensions of the tape into the width of rows 2 and 4. You’ll start by portray each different row, whereas the in between rows may have tape lined a part of the squares. When you paint each different row, then you’ll return in, and start to shift tape round. Beneath is an instance of what my wall regarded like after I used to be achieved portray rows 1, 3 and 5 and able to paint rows 2 and 4.
As soon as the paint is absolutely dry, you’ll peel it off, and join nook to nook of the painted squares. You’ll principally be re-taping the define of the brand new squares that you simply need to paint, It sounds very complicated, however I really feel like if you end up within the challenge, it does start to make a lot sense. Beneath is a picture the place you possibly can form of see what I imply – the accent shade has been painted in between the newly painted squares!
I made a decision so as to add on this accent shade as a result of I felt prefer it wanted the additional dimension, and I used to be additionally impressed by @saraheartmann tutorial, and cherished the lavender blended with a second shade. I hope this explains it for you, and you probably have any extra questions simply remark under!
