DIY Dalmatian wall (for under $50!)

hello hello all of you! I am so freaking excited to show you my new and very much improved *little* entryway. I did a full transformation and couldn’t be happier with the result. so let’s get into it

So I’ve been looking at removable wallpaper. Which is great if you live in an apartment and lack any art skills (like myself) but damn it’s expensive. My tiny 10 x 15 ft wall was going to cost me around $300. Like WHAT?! I’m crazy and love spending money but that just wasn’t happening. Let me introduce you to the star of the show. My stencil. GENIUS. I got my wall stencil from Etsy here. and it was $40. Yep. you heard right. I just saved myself $250 and I’m absolutely here for it. So I’ll be real. My wall doesn’t look perfect. But that is totally my fault. I’m 5 foot and the least impatient person you’ll ever meet so there are a few smudges just from me not taping down the stencil enough.

Let’s talk paint. super easy. Flat black, $6 from home depot (remember my wall was super small so I got away with getting this sample size.) Then I got myself a cheap roller (because it’s not that serious) and tape down the stencil and go to town. Just make sure you’re not putting too much paint on the roller and build up the coverage.

Here’s a few tips:

+Don’t put too much paint on the roller. You can always build up the color!

+Don’t tape the stencil upside down (hand to forehead). Then there will be a weird gap between each stencil piece you do.

+Have a buddy! I wish I had someone help me out with the painting and taping each section down.

Welcome to my world

Hello hello and welcome to my world. What does the world of Keri Hill contain? It’s one with a lot of McDonalds nuggets, luxury shopping and my French bulldog, Luna. It’s a world where I share with you my favorite healthy snacks in a post but then an hour later you see me eating pasta and french fries on my snapchat (it’s all about balance.) It’s a world where I post a few times a week about lifestyle, home decor, fitness and beauty. It’s a world that I hope you’ll be a part of and look forward to escaping yours to come to.
