Color blocking may be a newer trend but I hope it’s here to stay! It’s such a great way to add character to a space for the cost of some paint. If you don’t want to paint an entire wall, it’s a perfect way to add a splash of color. It’s perfect in a small space OR to break up a large space!!
Color Block Wall—Quick and Simple Way to Add a Big Punch!
- For my specific area, I chose to use the sloped ceiling as a guideline.
- This made a trapezoid type design, but the options are endless. I’ve seen circles, semi circles, rectangles, etc.
- I used painter’s tape and measured and marked 2 1/2 inches from each edge and put the tape all around.
- With the painter’s tape, I didn’t even use a brush. A mini roller did the trick!
- I painted two coats.
- Let it dry to the touch before you take the tape off.
- I added a little shelf using brackets and a piece of 2 x 6 pine cut to size.
- Some hand drawn artwork and sponge art work in Dollar Tree and Goodwill frames
- a few faux plants
- a couple of vintage items
- a candle

No Mary, it doesn't. Just apply the caulk, then use your finger to go over the wall and blue tape. The reason is to make sure that paint doesnt penetrate under the blue tape. You don't need a lot of caulk. I know it seems wierd. Try it on another surface like on a peice of cardboard and see how it works before you do it to a wall. You'll be surprised.
