This. statement. wall. is. everything.
It literally pulls together the whole house. I smile every time I walk in the door and see all those little triangles.
Originally, I had thought about stenciling the wall, but thought better of it. One wrong mark with black paint seemed like a lot of heart ache to clean up. I spent a little time on Pinterest and realized contact paper was the solution I was looking for.
As it turned out this was pretty easy to put together. For $8 I was able to get roll of contact paper that came with handy dandy graph paper on the back.
To make the wall I cut out about 60 triangles that were three inches wide and two inches long.
While I was cutting them out, Eryn (because whenever I do a craft Eryn is around) was tracing out level lines on the wall.
The trick for it looking good was to make sure it was random, which sounds easy but it actually rather difficult. The key was to try to make sure we weren’t accidentally creating any horizontal, vertical or diagonal lines.
I think the end result is lovely.
