Before and After: Craft Room Geometric Accent Wall

Hey there! If you have subscribed to my Youtube channel you have seen the “after” of this project but have you seen the before? My craft room left little to be desired but with some painter’s tape and 50 shades of pink paint, my accent wall is not only decorative but useful! 

BEFORE

Pro Tip: I used scissors to cut the tape to make these various designs. It is tempting to just rip the painter’s tape but you run the risk of having jagged edges. My goal was a funky geometric so there is no rhyme or reason to how I placed the tape on the wall.

Pro Tip #1: You can create harmonious monochromatic looks by incorporating tint, tone and shade of a color. Tint means adding white to the base color. Tone means adding gray to the base color. Shade means adding black to the base color. These custom colors were created by tinting a deep fuchsia/red with white. Before and after craft room accent wall

 

Once the paint was dry about two coats I peeled the tape.

Pro Tip #2: If you are going for a monochromatic look it is best to do both coats of one color before moving on to another color it will be difficult to replicate.

Pro Tip #3: Peel the tape at a 45 degree angle to prevent the wall paint from stretching and ruining the crisp lines of your project.

Pro Tip #4: Spray painting ordinary objects and affixing them to your wall can add some character to your final look.
