I’d been looking to add more gold accents somewhere in our master bedroom & Duck tape!?…seemed like the perfect DIY solution.
I first measured out a dummy diamond to make sure I liked the size. I measured at 20 inches down & 10 inches across instead of the 30 x 15 like in this post.
I then proceeded to mark the entire wall with my level every 10 inches across & every 20 down . This was the most time consuming part. I think it took me about three hours total!
I purchased four rolls of gold duck tape at Hobby Lobby for a total of $20 & got to work.
I quickly realized that the 20 x 10 diamonds would be too small. I decided to just connect every other dot as I went along so they would be a bit larger.
For some reason, I have one wonky diamond that you can sort of see behind the night stand on the left. After a total of five hours working up & down a step ladder by myself, I wasn’t about to try to fix it & risk messing up the whole thing! Let’s just pretend it’s perfect, K?
I’m loving the results! The one thing that would make it better? An upholstered headboard. Hmmmmm…
So? What do you guys think? Anyone else using duck tape to decorate?
