Do you know the design trend for 2016 is painted ceiling!!!

Tooooo bold for me was my first thought! But yeeees ofcouuurse i have to admit whom am i kidding! it looks amazing!!!

But i still didnt realize i will actually get off my back and actually do it. Reason fear of failure too much work sounds impossible on my own

Did i mention i am a sucker for black and white stripes! currently working on my living room gallery wall I had to find replacement for my black and white stripes art canvas for it was not working.

but the living room is screaaaaaming for the dramatic contrasting mesmerizing stripes.

And thn it hit me

The blaah ceiling can be turned into wow!!!!

Here is what you need

Duct tape I used the 2 inch one

paint

paint brush

ladder

Here is what I did

This is what I love about stripes! Its like playing with tape like we used to when we were kids!!!

How fun is that

Simply roll out tape and make stripes in whichever pattern you like!

I started from the left end and made the slanting lines leaving a gap of about 2 inches. When I reached the end I started from the middle and did the center triangle. And finished it off with slanting lines on the right!

When you are done with taping just take out the paint and brush and start painting!!!

THE ONNNLY most important thing you need to consider is to be weary of the drips! Coz there will be.

1.Make sure you dont have excess paint on the brush when you dip it in the paint.

2.Cover evvvvvverything below that area for maximum protection and scrubbing avoidance.

3.If you do drip make sure to hop right down and wipe it off till its still wet. So plenty of wiping off clothes on hand!

 

Let it dry for a day or two

And than remove!!!

Have a gorgeous day ahead!!!

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!

This side of the wall was painted grey somehow. According to the earlier plan of the room it was supposed to be a twin room for an infant baby boy and my toddler girl. But change of plans we bought a queen sized bed and ended up with a room with a wall in pink and a wall in grey! I still loved the grey and to make it a little more fun I added the cloud wall pattern and the raindrops!
