Herringbone Pattern Painted Accent Wall Using Tape

Today I’m stopping in to share a very last minute project we completed this weekend while the furniture was still out of our bedroom. We are currently replacing all the flooring upstairs with this pretty birch hardwood flooring we recently found on clearance at Floor & DĂ©cor in Glendale, AZ. Turns out replacing the flooring is very similar to moving out then in again! Yikes, lots of work, and the stairs and kids rooms still need to be done so our home is a little chaotic right now! 🙂 boring beige wall fix

Most of our home was this same beige color, Riviera Beach by Behr specifically. It’s a nice neutral, but to have all the rooms this color is super boring! We’ve painted the kitchen, powder room downstairs, the upstairs loft, stairway, hallway, and my office, It’s all becoming Exhausting! I do want to make our master bedroom special and unique so I decided to paint an accent wall in here and leave the other three walls the same color beige. Well six hours, 52 pieces of frog tape, and 4 more paint colors later we now have this!!

Coral and Turquoise Color Pallet for BedroomWe started off by measuring the middle of the wall and using a laser level to tape it off vertically using Frog Tape. We then found the center again on both sides and repeated the process. I also taped off the ceiling and the sides of the wall. We then measured every 9 inches and made marks on the tape from top to bottom. You then just use those marks to tape off your herringbone pattern. I’m not gonna lie, this was very time consuming! 🙂 We have textured walls, so I really tried to use my nail and ran it along the edges to make sure the tape was sealed.

I have so many wall color paint samples in our garage, so I picked three that matched our room’s pallet and started filling in a few of the boxes with each color. The last step was to paint two coats of white on the remaining part of the wall, and remove the tape. There was some bleeding, but I ended up using an angled makeup brush to fix those,  and it looks great! I am so happy I took the time to complete this project!! It looks so pretty and makes me happy everyday to wake up to!

Ikea photo frame shelvesI was using a gold vintage mirror in here and decided to paint it white. It fits so much better.
