I’m currently in the process of decorating my master bedroom. I’ve been trying to do everything myself and make everything myself. Well, with a little help from my man. So one day I was scrolling through Pinterest trying to get ideas and I came across this. I fell in love with the scalloped wall and decided to paint my own version on canvas, since I’m renting the house and can’t write on the walls or paint. It’s super easy to do, just time consuming.
The first step in this process is to get all your materials rounded up.
What you will need:
- Canvases in your size of choice
- Martha Stewart Metallic Rose Gold Paint
- 2 paint brushes (1 thick and 1 thin)
- Thick paper
First you are going to cut out this shape from the thick paper. It is about 3 inches tall. You will use this to trace. Also, make marks on yours like I did on mine. These marks will help you measure where to put the shapes.
To start, you place the cut out shape on the side of the canvas so that it is halfway on the canvas. It should be in upright like the picture above. Trace around the shape.
Then you will flip the cut out on it’s side and measure a space directly below or above the shape you just drew with the cut out like pictured.
In order to know how much space you need inbetween the scallops, measure like pictured.
Then it’s just a matter of drawing the rest of the scallops.
Remember to trace lightly. You don’t want to have thick lines that are visible under the paint.
Next, you’re going to connect the side points of the scallops like so.
Then all you have to do is just paint the shapes you traced. After that you will use your thin paint brush to paint over the connected point lines.
Here’s the finished product. I painted two canvases to put above each of my nightstands. I can’t wait until I finish decorating my whole master bedroom and can share it!
