Triangles just always seemed like the shape I was going to do. I did think about polka dots but I always came back to wanting to do triangles. I first thought I would buy a big triangle punch out but the ones at hobby lobby weren't big enough. Or at least not big enough for my liking. So I decided that I would just measure, trace, and cut. Which I think was the better way to go anyways because it was cheaper. The only thing I bought to make this statement wall happen was the vinyl.
1. Measure and draw the size of triangles on the vinyl. Use pencil that way you can erase lines later. 2. Cut them out. 3. Separate the pieces and check for straight lines. 4. I used my straight cutter (that I also use for my cards) to touch up the edges. 5. Start placing them on the walls. I didn't really have any rhyme or reason, I just tried to place them evenly. 6. Done. Throw away your garbage.
This was a really fun project and I really love how it turned out. Living in an apartment I knew that my decorating would be limited but I didn't want that to stop me from making this first place my home. We are also lucky enough to be able to paint (which I have done.) But I didn't want to go totally crazy with the paint because I will have to repaint when I leave. So this statement wall was a great addition to our home and so easy. What do you think?
