Brush stroke accent wall

After many requests and much anticipation - a blog post on my dining room accent wall!



I finally managed to pick up the blogging pen again. Is that a thing? I'm hoping I'll be inspired to share more content and home projects through this platform going forward!


One of the most-asked questions I get on Instagram is how I painted my dining room accent wall (some even ask me where I ordered my dining room wallpaper - ha!) The truth is, this was a stupid easy project. Like, anyone can do it. Grab your three-year-old. I'm serious. Actually it might even look better if your three-year-old does it for you.


Here are some photos of the dining room before, and during the project. Post on sanding and refinishing the media stand is coming soon!



I used the second largest sized paint brush in this Crayola paintbrush set (see - three-year-old things), and literally brushed on different sized stokes onto my wall in no particular fashion.


I will say this; I tried to make each line vertically straight with no angle, but that didn't always happen. Still, the best part about this project is you want the finished result to be perfectly imperfect. I think my slightly slanted strokes in some places did just that.


The background color of my accent wall is Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray, and the white paint used for the brush strokes is Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace (my favorite white paint).



What did you think? Will you try this project out? Let me know!
