The dining room needed some umph. The previous owner put up what we loving called the "Thanksgiving wallpaper". Um.....yeah.
I wanted our dining room to be chic and beautiful, and with colors that also tied into our living room.
Supplies needed:Black sponge brushes
Blue tape (I feel like the "sharp edge" blue tape from scotch works the best...)
A white pencil (shows up easily, erases great, and doesn't show through paint)
A yard stick/level
An accent paint of your choice
I used Word and inserted the diamond shape. Easy peasy. Printed it on card stock.
Every other line, mark 20in down from the ceiling. On the other lines, mark 6in down from the ceiling.
At the 20in and 6in marks, place the tip of the diamond along the line and trace.
Erase the line in the middle
TIPSIf you are going metallic, Martha Stewarts selection is awesome. I used 4 of her little bottles. I also got a interior top coat to ensure it stays on the wall well
A lot of people get flat paint for the wall, and then satin paint of the same color for the accent. Perfect if you are going for a more subtle pattern.
My friend wanted thin lines, so she substituted paint with a non-oil based paint Sharpie. It looks awesome.
After it's dry, take off tape, touch up it up, erase any extra lines and you are set!
