For my washi workshops I will be sharing ways to use washi in your home.
Before I even start I want to apologize, this is a difficult wall to take pictures of, its narrow and at the end of the hallway...so you have to stand on either side of it to see it, I wasn't able to get a picture of the whole wall. These pictures are also taken with my iphone, although I love it.. low light isn't always it's friend!!! :)
This month I wanted to share a project I recently worked on in my own home! We had this wall at the end of our hallway dedicated to Disney memories. I wanted to update it, what better way than with chalkboard paint and washi tape? My wonderful father in law smooth walled this for me to give me a great base. After it was painted with chalkboard paint, the HUGE thing you need to remember is to rub the whole wall down with the side of chalk, then wipe it away. This will give it that worn chalkboard look, instead of a DIY project gone bad! :)
Instead of focusing on the size of the pictures, I wanted the frames to be fun and over sized. I just started creating and filled in the space as I saw fit. Then I added our pictures with bright and colorful Freckle Fawn Washi Tape!!
From there I filled in the empty space with dates, quotes and memories!
I love that the washi tape allows this wall to change whenever we need it to! Also the washi tape easily removes from the photos without damaging them!
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my home. How are you using washi in your home?
