A geometric DIY painted mural is a great way to add some modern edge to a space. It’s easy, it doesn’t take long to complete, and it’s very budget-friendly. Here’s how to get the look:
Before doing anything with your walls, make a plan about how you want your finished mural to look. Either sketch it out on paper to get the design down. Or if you want a truer representation including colors, create it with a computer program.
Taping & Painting the Mural
Once the paint has completely dried tape off the sections for each block of color. We opted for large triangular sections, however you can make the design as simple or complex as you want. **make sure to use proper painter’s tape and do not substitute it for other kinds.
Paint the sections in your chosen colors, making sure to space them evenly throughout the design. Don’t allow sections of the same color to go right next to each other.
Allow the paint to completely dry (at least 18 hours) and then gently peel off the tape. If the paint isn’t properly cured you may have some peeling when lifting off the tape, so make sure to give it enough time to dry in order to get crisp, clean lines.
Don’t forget about decorating. Just because the contractor’s done it doesn’t mean your job is over. You still need to buy furniture, window treatments and accessories. Make sure you’ve included these in the budget.
