It’s DIY Time!


{Pick up a basic mat and spray it with your desired base color – I chose a rosegold-metallic spray paint base.}

{Next, use sturdy painters’ tape to crate your shapes/design.}

{Here’s where the fun really starts….use your favorite colors to fill in your taped design! I used regular latex-based wall color for this, but spray paint would also work.}

{After a bit of drying time, gently remove the tape and VOILA! This baby is ready for use.}

{Isn’t she a cutie?!}

Here’s a simple & fun DIY project for your weekend or your next day off! You can keep it geometric and simple like I did, or you can get crazy with initials or an ombre pattern. Have fun!! I’d love to see what you come up with.
