Diamond Accent Wall

2 Materials
Want a outstanding accent wall? It's so easy to do and makes such a big statement one one day!
Starting from the top right corner, make a mark every 24 inches. From the bottom right corner, mark every 12 inches. These are going to be your guides.
Take the painters tape and tape off the wall like you would for regular paint job. Then start to lay it out diagonally. It’s easier to start in one direction, move all the way across the wall. Then go back and do the opposite diagonal direction on top. Doing a basket type weave with the tape is only going to get annoying and make it difficult to adjust the tape. YOU WILL NEED TO ADJUST THE TAPE. Make sure it’s not bowing and you have straight lines.  When you’re finished it will look like this.
Choose a paint color and paint right over all the tape! Let the paint dry 80% of the way before pulling it off. If you wait until it's completely dry you might pull off chips of paint along with the painters tape.
Suggested materials:
