Memphis Feature wall bedroom

Today’s post is more of a visual treat!

Means less talking more watching!!!!!!

If you know me you would want to know three things

black/white,

pop of color,

stripes

This is what DEFINES my style

This is what DEFINES ME!!!

(well part of me) but whhhhole looooot of me!!

So you all know how I have converted my bedroom into a grid feature wall.

I have been loving and swarming in that geometrical heaven when I came across this post by Oh Happy Day!

This was my first ever taste of Memphis Design..

And than I translate my room into a Memphis decor!!

I had a very basic room in the accents of white. So all I had to do thanks to the feature wall add more stripes and layer it with some pop of colors. The wall facing my bed was turned into a canvas filled with geometrical bliss. And this is how it turned out!

I added a bit of contrast with the stripes on grid and added the accents in neon colors on a white canvas to make it all pop!

For this simple DIY you need:

  • Planters of your choice
  • duct tape
  • acrylic paints of your choice: it largely depends on what pots you are using. Clay would need something else. But i used plastic. So acrylic paints worked fine for me.

Instructions:

  1. Tape the planters in pattern of your choice or just random. Like I did!

And Paint!!!!

Now i have always had difficulty with acrylic paints almost on every material. So in this case too when I used paint brush, it gave me really dreary lines all over with a total yuck effect! So i dropped brush and used cotton swabs instead. As you can see in this picture the different strokes I got while using the two.

Anyone else having this difficulty?!?!

Let me know your solutions or maybe the riight way of using acrylic paints 😀

So cotton swabs are a winner for me!!!

And this is the end result!!!! I looooooove the pop of color and the life they are bringing to these plants! And my window sill!!

I let them dry for a few days!! before peeling the tape off! Well it was more out of procrastination than any other reason. But when I did peel, they were completely dry and whenI peeled them I had to line the tape with a scale where the paint and tape were meeting. Just to separate them, otherwise it was the paint off!!

That is all the work I put into this project!!!

Have a fantastic day everyone!!!!

DIY Canvas light art

DSC_4857If you followed my daughters room makeover process!! on my wishlist was a light art project! View more of my moodboard here!!! And the complete room makeover is here and here!

For this DIY I had on my hand some canvas and some ferry lights and I had to make them work!!!

  1. Mix up the paint color of your choice. I used the color I used for the colorblock wall!! It was bit tough to work with! But It turned out fine.
  2. Considering I was using wall paint on canvas for an easy application i used this foam brush thing! It gave much cleaner application and was very east to use!

3. Next I used a pencil to sketch the letters. The font I used was a double lettered font. I drew a line in the middle and on that I dotted around 1 inch apart. That is where I wanted to insert ferry lights.

4. To punch holes I used this screwdriver! Make sure you count the dots carefully to avoid any awkward gaps! I used two ferry light strings of 100 bulbs. So I divided equally 200 dots for the holes!

5. Start punching!
