I have seen this creative project a couple places and I knew I had the perfect wall to try it out for myself! I first saw this cool idea of writing on the wall from Courtney’s blog A Thoughtful Place. It came out great and looked pretty simple to do! Then just last week I saw some inspiring wall images from the blog Coco Cozy. I thought it was so clever and unique that I had to try it! The best part about the project is that you can write whatever you want, making it meaningful and personal to you! I chose an inspiring quote that I found on pinterest. As I’m trying to figure out what I want to do and the career path I want to take, this will definitely continue to inspire me! Also, I thought the quote would be a great jump start to every day, while also looking pretty sweet on the wall:
And here is the quote on our family room wall:
I used Elmer’s Painters Marker in White, with a medium tip for writing. It’s a permanent pen, so the writing should not smear away. I wanted the script to appear subtle, so it didn’t jump out at you too much. I was able to fit the quote almost 3 times and used just one pen to finish! I wanted the look to appear as if it was an ongoing script, so when it came time to finish a word at the end of the wall, I didn’t try and smoosh the word to fit. I just wrote what I could, then continued on the next line. (That only happened a couple times.) I also decided to make all letters lowercase and not use punctuation.
