Here are the steps I followed:
- Determine where you want your picture on the wall and hang it temporarily.
- Determine how much you want your color block to extend out from the picture (mine was 5" out from the picture all the way around it) and measure and mark on the wall with a pencil.
- Tape off the marked area.
- Paint with your desired color
I wanted it on this wall... (I sound like a spoiled child huh!? ;o)
See how light the picture is? It would just blend in with the wall without the color block to frame it and give it more presence.
I chose a little bit lighter shade than the dark grey wall to paint my color block/faux frame.
I just love this picture... I'm not really a horse person though... I mean I think they are a beautiful animal and I love to admire them... from afar... Clydesdale's are my favorite :o)
This picture just really spoke to me, I think it's beautiful...
What do you think? Do you have any color blocked walls or would you ever create one?
