Monograms on Walls

  • Posted on October 28, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Today I chose to talk about using your monogram as the focal point of your wall.  First of all you will need to decide which exact initials you will be using and typically the last name initial goes in the center and is a little larger than the first and middle name initials on the left and right hand side.  If you choose to do them all the same size, then you would put the initials in the logical order they would go.  You can trace on your wall the initials, project them or even go to an online store such as Wall Words or many other places and order decals.  Of course, you can always hire an artist to paint them for you as well.  The two examples I have today are one over a crib which could later transition into a bed or other piece of furniture such as a dresser underneath it.  I also chose to stripe the walls in this room.   The other, I was more creative on and painted a dark chocolate bannister type shape that appears to be hanging and has ball fringe on the bottom (once again hanging over a crib which can later be another bed or piece of furniture).  I also painted dark chocolate trees in the corners of the room on either end.  These can easily be chalked in and literally filled in with paint.  Fairly simple to do or hire your local artist.  Monograms are a very popular way of personalizing a bedroom to give it an extraordinary touch.

Today let’s talk about chalkboard paint!  It now comes in an array of colors… But my personal preference is black!  It stands out the most and your chalk looks great in any color contrast.  Plan your shape or design.  If needed, tape off your lines with blue painters tape found at Walmart, Target, and any hardware store.  You can find chalkboard paint at the same stores mentioned earlier besides paint stores and craft stores too.  Depending on the size once you have taped it, simply roll it on like regular wall paint.  Follow the instructions on the can if you need to follow up with a second coat.  You can make it as simple as a large square or rectangle in a specific area of your room.  It can be a whole wall.  You can also tape off  the upper or lower portion of a wall and your child will have the whole section of your wall to create on.  I have chose a few pictures of  a little more of the artsy type chalkboards.  One is where I simply added a painted border around it with a train.   Another I did in a smaller area in a kitchen where family could simply leave notes to each other or make a grocery list or menu for the day!  Your own limitation is your imagination.  If you do not have the artistic skills, you can use wallpaper border, trim it out with a painted wood trim or find your local friendly artist to paint you something special!  Enjoy!

285011_2280118679330_464572_nUse framed prints to fill up blank space on the wall behind a bed, an arrangement that doubles as a headboard. To create this grid like look, use square black frames and hang them close together, leaving about 2-3 inches between the frame edges.  Or go with a single image that has 3 or 4 distinct patterns.  Work within your color theme of your room.
