DIY…Diamond Pattern Wall With Thumbtack Border
Diamonds can be everyone’s best friend. A diamond pattern on either an accent wall or in the entire room can be fun and casual or elegant and trés French. While it necessitates careful taping, this technique can add an incredible “ wow” factor to a bedroom, hallway, vestibule or dining room.
To achieve this effect, you apply the lighter color base coat, then create a tape grid of diamonds, filling some in with either a contrasting color or another finish in the same color as the base. My oldest daughter decided to try this method in her new master bedroom.
You know the saying, “They Do Everything Big In Texas!”
Trimming out your furniture, walls, and decorative accessories with thumbtacks is a fun way to add a trendy update to your furnishings.
All you need is a hammer, some thumbtacks, and a tape measure.
The key to getting a professional look is to space the thumbtacks at even intervals. Pin a tape measure along the line where you want to add the nail heads. Space the tacks to touch or keep a space in-between each one. You can create many different looks with how you decide to space them.
Now who do you think would buy her something like that? LOL! Yes, her mama here.
You have to spread the tropics everywhere you go right? Don’t you just love how the light flows into this room…beautiful.
IT even reflects right onto the diamond wall!
