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!!!

easy DIY diamond string art 8

I have been on a DIY ride for some time. Well I am not the best at it, I have to admit. Some projects fumble and crumble right in front of my eyes coz i am too lazy to actually care too much :). But i love the simple fun 5-10 min projects preferably non messy.

So here is one of my really fun, easy peasy and non messy project which is an absolute delightful art addition to my home. I am in love with this diamond. And it took me no less than 10 mins to finish! Now who wouldn’t want that!!!

Here is how i did it!

Material:

  • one canvas: i used the small size
  • thread in choice of your color
  • needle
  • pencil and scale to sketch

2. Thread the needle and get going.

4. Keep going! When you run out of thread simply loop it into the nearest knot. just avoid making a thread mess behind the canvas, coz it can overshadow your art.
