DIY Scalloped Accent Wall

This accent wall of mine has been through a few different transformations over a short amout of time. Now, it’s this pretty and clean looking wall with painted gold scallops. The gold scallops are subtle and thats what I like so much about them. It was the opposite from the old Chervon Wall. The DIY Scalloped Accent Wall was done for less then $5.

Let me tell you how I changed this wall… First I painted the wall Behr Snow Fall. That alone was a big change. Scalloped Wall Before

I used a Gold Sharpie Paint Pen. I used the normal size marker tip. I also used a steamer pot lid from one of my tamale pots I got it at Walmart. The lid worked sooooo perfect. I simply marked two lines on to the lid and thats what I used as the guide. I would draw the scallop from line to line, and because of the holes I could see the center of the scallop above. It was that easy. I bought two paint pens. I went through one and a half pens total. It only took like 2-3 hours to finish the whole wall. My wall is really really long.

I honestly love the wall so much!! The gold is perfect and the pattern is subtle but still makes a big impact.

Have you used a sharpie paint pen yet? Can you even imagine the possibilites using these sharpie paint pens. And for under $5 this is a great DIY project and it makes a big impact.

      I was wondering the same thing. It would be easy to trace the outline of the steamer onto a piece of cardboard. Wouldn’t need any holes.

    Ok, I totally love this! I love that it was so inexpensive, and that you just used the steamer pot lid. Who would have thought! 🙂 The wall looks beautiful, and I agree, it is a subtle, but makes a big impact. SO pretty! Thank you for taking the time to stop by and link up to The Creative Exchange!

    Um, this is amazing! I am always so intimidated by stencils and I live the simplicity of it yet the big impact. I might have to do this in my daughters room!

    I love the idea of using a sharpie, but I”m pretty sure i’d have a few blunders, did you have any mess-ups that you had to paint over and try again??
