Well, it took about five-six hours. I may have gone a little crazy with this project. Ehh, if I decide I don’t like it, it’ll be easy to take down.
I watched The Sorry Girl’s video, randomly decided to do the cross stitch design over the bench. I was debating for a while rather or not to purchase a tapestry to hang. I could never decide what design, if I wanted certain colors or if I wanted a simple word.
This is how a.d.d. I am… I started this project idea by looking at Pinterest looking for a painting idea. Then I remembered The Sorry Girl’s video I watched the other day. I decided to switch project ideas.
I collected the supplies; then noticed I needed to change multiple lightbulbs.
Finally got back to the project. I started off with the cross stitch pattern. I blocked off the area o wanted with painters tape. I went on Illustrator which is on the computer to figure out the measurements. Slightly didn’t help me at the end of the game because I measured the strips wrong initially. It did help me get a visual. I tried to be presistant but I know there are flaws. I cut the cross stitch 3inches (I’m pretty sure that is what the video suggested). Measured and marked on the painters tape. There was an extra strip I made to help me go down the rows. I still love how it turned out!
- Measuring tape
- Electrical tape
- Painters tape & pencil/pen (optional if you want to mark, high suggest it)
After that project, I just wanted to keep going. I started this little wall side where my tv sits. I will admit there it was easier and harder than the cross stitch pattern. I stretch the tape to connect to the other lines. (Definitely not suggest that because later the tape will peak off. I haven’t gone back to fill in with extra tape. Opps!) It’s hard for me to tape a straight line. I had to keep going back and fixing it. Some I just left a little wonky. I’m the only one in this room.
Even though that little wall is such a small area, it is amazing electrical tape can have an impact.
Pinterest, seriously I love you! Well, Pinterest gives me hope that I can accomplish a project. Hope is the key word. This project was pretty simple.
Since I was seriously obbessed, I saw an image earlier with different shapes.
There a blank space where I wanted something flat to take the space. This heart is slightly weird that it’s “low” on the wall. However, I have seven different lengths of shelves hanging on this wall. On these shelves, there are different little things displayed. Eventually I’ll get the display to my loving. I just really like it at the moment. I needed something flat to hopefully balance it. A girl can wish.
If you attempt this project send pictures! I would love to see what magic you can create!
