We switched some rooms around in our home last week~ Phil and I took Philly's room (smallest in the house), and he is going to move into a sectioned off, half-room we are re-doing completely (later in September). Our walls are pretty bare still, but I found an easy, cheap paint-chip project on Pinterest to add some color to the room. The only cost was the frame.
(Let's just pretend the room isn't covered in paneling from 1973. It will come down someday; but in the meantime, we refer to it as 'retro'. Not ugly. Even if both are valid.)
What you need:
1. Paint chip samples in your favorite color scheme. And maybe some printed or textured scrap paper for an extra touch of fun. (I used cork-board paper for a few triangles.)
2. Scissors. Or, if you want to cheat (don't feel bad; I cheated, too)... use a triangle punch. It literally takes 99% less time to complete the project.
Once my triangles were punched out, I filled in a 8x1o space on my paper with them~ just laying them out to figure out my color scheme. Then I went through with glue, sticking them down. (The ends of each row are triangles cut down the center.)
Like I said, super easy.
And I kinda love it.
It makes the perfect piece of custom artwork for any room, since you can use colors and patterns to match your decor. Each of the kids made one this week, too, in their own color scheme... Pretty simple; simple pretty~ the best kind of project:).
Happy Thursday, friends!
