Our Mini Family: Easy, Blue and Gold Wall Art

Easy, Blue and Gold Wall Art

We finally have made a color palette choice for our bedroom!
Blue & gold accents!
*jumps up and down*


I am SOOO excited! For whatever reason, the bedroom has been the last place we've started really decorating--in fact, we're still waiting on a bed frame (it's on its way in the mail!) We've been toughing it out on just a mattress on the floor for over a year, and we're ready to spruce it up! So I've taken on the challenge to create multiple, wall accents for our bedroom in the coming months! So you'll all be seeing more gold & blue tones up in here! 
This is a photo I snapped real quick with my iPhone to give you an idea of our wall in the early stages.

Here's the 411 on this easy, 10 minutes wall accent project:
-grab a stencil of a pattern you love!
-use a sharpened pencil for tracing
-don't stencil the entire canvas
(otherwise your wall may look pattern heavy)
-use acrylic paint because it dries fastest
-use smaller size brushes for accuracy
-don't be afraid to be quick about it
-don't stress about not having perfect lines
-wait for your paint coats to dry on the sides before re-applying (oops)
-play around with what angle you want to hang it on! i.e. vertical, horizontal, diagonal, etc

What colors are you rocking in your bedroom? :)
