Painting Project

September 29, 2015

My oldest daughter, Avery, has had the same purple walls since we moved into this home 8 years ago. The good news is that she still loves the color. But she has been hoping for a little bit of an update for awhile now.

With that in mind, we decided to create a unique focal point on her wall. The purple remains, but the graphic and modern hexagon pattern says, “I’m a tween, and no longer 2.”

We headed to Menards to check out their selection of Pittsburgh Paints & Stains. Their Digital Inspiration Studio was super easy to use and so helpful.

We picked out the perfect colors for our project, took them home, and got to work. We chose a combo of flat and semi gloss to create contrast on the wall, with a pretty aqua, a blue that was one shade lighter, and white.

Avery sketched out her ideas for the hexagons, and we got to work tracing. It took a couple of tries because it turns out her giant headboard was taller than I first envisioned. The white hexagons are raised to add a little interest. We taped our edges, and started painting, using Kingston Aqua (the lighter blue), Bermuda (the deeper color), and Aria (the white).

Avery was so happy with the finished project! And the greatest thing was that it took under an hour from start to finish (for the parts at home).

  1. So cute – love it! I painted my daughter’s room too – fairy tale rolling hills and skies with a watercolor feel, and I think we might both be ready for an update 🙂 Enjoy the beautiful “new” room!
