A Funky Hexagon Painted Wall DIY

This DIY hexagon wall paint design has a funky modern flare.  It doesn’t have to be relegated to a boy’s bedroom.  It will be a great design for any room in the house.  The hexagons can be all in one color or several.  Choose a bright color to liven the room.  Thanks to Perspective for the great idea.

I stayed in my JP’s all day yesterday, basically!
I did get out of them by 1:50 to go out for a run, in the cold, and wind, and snow.
I under dressed for the occasion, but the benefit to that is I didn’t feel my legs aching until after they thawed out!  It was a cold run!  Wasn’t sure I wanted to go, but glad I did.

Back to my PJ’s.  Wish I could say I spent the morning lounging around in those babies, but if you know me, you know that would just be me lying.  I don’t lay around, unless it’s midnight.

From the second I was finished getting kids out the door, until I changed into my running clothes, I was in my office painting.  That is where I have been for the past few days, oh and painting a fireplace wall.  I’m excited to share all of that with you!  Watch out, there will be many home posts coming your way.

Before I get there, though… if you follow along on FB you know that a couple of weeks ago I started working on G’s room.

I have finished ‘the wall’.

His room isn’t done yet, but ‘the wall’ is.

I can’t tell you how much I love how it turned out!  Better than what I imagined in my head, and I have a great imagination!

Here is a bit about the process…
Beginning stages we talked about what he wanted for his new room.
This kid doesn’t really care about stuff like room decor!  I started with ‘what are your favorite colors?’  Let’s pick what colors you’d like in your room.  We came up with our color scheme: orange, blue, grey and black.
Back in November I bought him his orange beadspread, which doesn’t look all pretty in these photos, but hey, he’s 11!

He is very into rubik’s cubes, math etc.  I thought he may appreciate something graphic like that on his wall and I have been wanting to do a bold wall somewhere, anywhere, for a while, like since we’ve moved in!  When I explained it to him he got excited and we decided on hexagons.

After talking about it a bit we thought it would be cool to cluster the shapes on one side and have them taper off along the other side.  Again, love it!  Turned out amazing!

Months ago I decided I would make a template and trace the hexi’s on the wall.
Do you know how hard it is to draw a hexi?  The measurements are all weird!
Here is how it looked on the cardboard before I cut it out.
