Diamond Confetti Wall!
My daughter just turned 12.
We bought a house and it's finally at decorating point--well some of it.
So I started with my daughters room.
Tween rooms can be tricky.
My daughter is still very girly and cutesy...but I knew that would not last forever...
possibly not even a year!
So I wanted to do something that can transition easily...and change easily!!!
She requested a confetti wall.
and I used to have dreams about diamonds and gems in all their
glory for the taking rushing past me like a river.
So this was where my inspiration came from.
Did you see this fancy tote bag with gem?
It's awesome too...so many possibilities with these diamonds!
We started with baby blue walls and quickly painted everything white.
I used a satin finish...and we waited the 3 entire weeks before
putting up vinyl, which was so hard!
I sat tirelessly weeding vinyl. I guess I could tell people that I weeded all weekend.
Gems, crystals, fine cut diamonds in every variety!
Some have very delicate lines and would be a disaster without transfer tape.
"Like a Diamond in the Sky"...
you know, from Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Love that.
One by one we clustered the pieces on the wall.
I went with clusters instead of evenly spaced confetti.
Then carefully peeling back the transfer tape.
Rarity would be pleased!
It took about 2 hours from start to finish.
So worth it though. I love the variety of lines, shapes and colors.
Some of the vinyl is iridescent, some is metallic, some glittery.
Helps to bring it all together!
It's busy and fun...and so girly, but also adulty!
I could stare at it for hours.
And, I have favorites too.
And when we are ready for a change, it's just a quick bit of peeling and starting fresh!
