Hi and Happy Monday!!! I’ve been operating on this publish for a whilst, but daily life continued to get in the way – but I required to share a how-to on introducing this major checked accent wall, considering that checkered sample is so stylish ideal now! It is incredibly doable, and you only have to have a handful of vital tools!

What I necessary:

A laser level – I would say this is not needed, but it manufactured this challenge significantly a lot easier.

A normal stage

A ruler – I favor these wood types

a great deal of blue tape!!

brushes and rollers

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

To get started:

Initial I measured my wall dimensions in whole, 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 out by taping horizontally, and then moved on to vertical. In purchase to tape points, you need to have to account for the TAPE Sizing into the complete sq. measurement, so you will begin by building rows 1, 3, and 5 the appropriate size, and then incorporate the sizing of the tape into the width of rows 2 and 4. You will start off by portray each other row, though the in among rows will have tape included part of the squares. The moment you paint each other row, then you will go back again in, and start out to shift tape all around. Under is an illustration of what my wall appeared like just after I was done portray rows 1, 3 and 5 and all set to paint rows 2 and 4.

At the time the paint is totally dry, you will peel it off, and link corner to corner of the painted squares. You will in essence be re-taping the define of the new squares that you want to paint, It seems incredibly complicated, but I really feel like when you are in the challenge, it does start out to make so significantly feeling. Down below is an picture where you can type of see what I imply – the accent coloration has been painted in concerning the recently painted squares!

I determined to incorporate in this accent colour for the reason that I felt like it needed the further dimension, and I was also motivated by @saraheartmann tutorial, and beloved the lavender mixed with a next color. I hope this clarifies it for you, and if you have any more inquiries just comment beneath!
