Sharpie Doodle on Your Walls!
I took a sharpie to a freshly painted white wall and loved the result!
I wanted to add some personality to my son's room and decided to get creative with his boring and tired closet. I started the closet makeover with a fresh coat of white paint. My go to soft white is Benjamin Moore, Simply White.
While it dried (and my son napped) I searched the internet for inspiration. Google turned up some great doodle and clip art images for my space theme and I mapped out my ideas in a notepad.
Next, I used pencil to draw my doodles on the wall. I referred to my google search images and notepad sketch often. using a pencil first means no pressure - just erase when you make a mistake!
Sharpie time! No turning back now. I traced over my pencil lines with a sharpie. Going slow created cleaner, solid lines. I also had multiple sharpies on hand and switched them out often as the ink stopped flowing well (drawing on a wall means working against gravity).
Once the ink dried well I carefully erased any pencil lines that were showing. The sharpie smudges easily at first so wait a day or so for this step.
Baskets and accessories look cute and add storage.
The result is adorable! My son loves it and so do I!
