what kind of paint did you use, and how to you get your lines so straight?

I would love to do something like this in my kid's loft! It is beautiful!

I use a base of latex and then I paint with cheap-o artists acrylics which mix perfectly fine w/ latex. I used Fedex envelopes to draw the diamonds on the wall with pencil. Then I just painted in the design. Once all the colors are on, I line everything with black acrylic which I put on with a small brush freehand.

It takes nerve and if you want to practice, I suggest buying "masonite" wallboard and practicing the design on that first. Hardest thing is to get up your nerve. It's easy after the first splodge of paint on the wall.

Good luck!

Wow, thank you so much. I didn't expect such a detailed response - that is really great - with all the details, it takes the worry out of it!

Kristin, I just love, love your taste. I'm pretty sure I'd fit right in there. I'm strongly considering making a similar pattern in my dining room! So excited! Thank you for the inspiration! Your house is beautiful!!!

It is to me, the definition of 'eclectic'... fun, funky, beautiful and original! What a great job, congrats!
