This simple gold grid was just what the room needed.
I've always love Mandi's (of Vintage Revivals) gold sharpie wall in her living room. So, I decided to attempt my own version. Using just 2 waterbased gold sharpie paint pens I was able to cover the whole wall. I didn't want super straight lines, I wanted the grid to look hand drawn (but not like a 5 year old did it). So, I measured and taped off every line, but ran the sharpie pen just above the tape line so that the line would not be perfectly straight. I spaced my grid 6" apart. Using a level and tape measure, I taped one line at a time, drew my sharpie line and then moved the tape ( I used the same piece of tape for almost the entire wall). I'm not going to say that this was quick job, but it was easy. I think I completed the whole wall in about 5 or 6 hours. Not bad for a $7 wall.
It's subtle and a little shimmery. I love how object look hanging on it. It's a fun layer to this space.
I'm tempted to draw a gold grid wall on my bedroom wall. I think the gold would look really great on my grey walls.
