Sharpie Wall Space Prep
Prior to beginning our easy sharpie accent wall, we decided to repaint the entire powder room in Sherwin Williams Pure White. I think white is great at making small spaces appear much larger.
Visualizing The Sharpie Wall
If you’re anything like me, then you’re very much a visual person! I used blue painter’s tape to create a mock-up of the geometric lines. This process allowed me to adjust and readjust the lines until I was completely satisfied with the finished design. I then used a ruler and a pencil to draw out the lines, so I’d know exactly where to retrace with the sharpie paint pen. Here’s another highly recommended sharpie paint pen.
Best Technique to Create Clean Sharpie Lines
Initially, I was simply retracing the pencil lines with the sharpie paint pen and ruler. However, we have textured walls, and my lines we’re as clean as I wanted them to be. We decided to create a tape border around each line which gave a prettier finished look! To minimize waste, I was able to resue the blue tape for several lines before having to trash them. I love this oil-based sharpie paint pen because it’s fade, water, and abrasion-resistant. It also works really well on a variety of surfaces.
