Good day and Delighted Monday!!! I have been doing work on this publish for a whilst, but existence continued to get in the way – but I wished to share a how-to on adding this big checked accent wall, given that checkered pattern is so fashionable appropriate now! It is really doable, and you only need a several crucial tools!
What I desired:
A laser stage – I would say this is not required, but it created this task significantly much less complicated.
A ruler – I desire these wood types
a lot of blue tape!!
brushes and rollers
To start out:
To start with I calculated my wall dimensions in comprehensive, and divided up the squares into the width that I wished. I went with 14 X 14 inch squares. You then have to tape the squares – I started by taping horizontally, and then moved on to vertical. In purchase to tape factors, you need to have to account for the TAPE Dimension into the total square measurement, so you will commence by producing rows 1, 3, and 5 the right sizing, and then increase the dimension of the tape into the width of rows 2 and 4. You will commence by portray each and every other row, whilst the in among rows will have tape covered part of the squares. After you paint each individual other row, then you will go back in, and start out to change tape close to. Down below is an case in point of what my wall seemed like just after I was completed painting rows 1, 3 and 5 and ready to paint rows 2 and 4.
Once the paint is fully dry, you will peel it off, and join corner to corner of the painted squares. You will essentially be re-taping the define of the new squares that you want to paint, It appears quite puzzling, but I sense like when you are in the undertaking, it does start to make so considerably sense. Underneath is an graphic in which you can sort of see what I signify – the accent shade has been painted in amongst the recently painted squares!
I decided to include in this accent shade because I felt like it desired the excess dimension, and I was also motivated by @saraheartmann tutorial, and cherished the lavender combined with a second colour. I hope this clarifies it for you, and if you have any additional concerns just remark underneath!
