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
pop of color,
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!
This feature wall has to be my favourite creation ever!!! I am seriously in love with it! I had a baallll!! creating it and every time I lay my eyes on it my heart skips a happy beat!
I used sideboards as an excuse to add the same elements_ stripes and a pop of color on a blank white canvas.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post!! I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions and also would you dare to live in a Memphis room??? Or a duct tape decorated room?? I would love to hear what you have to say!!
Have a gorgeous day!!!
Can I be the first one to say OHMYGOSH!!!!!!!!!!
Can you see the transformation!!
This has to be the easiest way to spruce up a room on a weekend!!
You can take a look at the entire process here
Here is what it looked like once the tapes were removed!!
Love love love it!!!!!!
Hopefully I inspired you to add stripes in your life and to make your home the sweet place you hardly want to get out of!!!
Have a fantastic weekend!!
Need any excuse to get your hands in this pic 🙂 🙂 pretty colors and cotton swabs.. aren’t they tempting
I used them to create these color block planters..
Well in this pic they are still in the process…
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.
- Tape the planters in pattern of your choice or just random. Like I did!
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!!!!
If 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!!!
- 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.
- 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!
This is what it looked like when I punched all the dots. Now I had 200 evenly dsitributed holes!
6. Insert the ferry light bulbs!!!
For finishing I just traced the outlines with a gold marker! ANd Ta-daaaa!!!
My easy DIY light up canvas art!!
Let me know what you think!!!
