After measuring the width and height of the wall and dividing them by three (don't ask me why we picked three, I guess that odd number rule of decorating thing. Whatever, It seemed right at the time.) we started measuring out from the center and placing dots along the wall. The rocket scientists said all we'd have to do is get our blue painters tape and start connecting the dots to make the zig-zags. Why what could be easier than that I said! It should have been easy, but it was not. Nothing was turning out right. We ended up ripping off all the tape and starting over.
We used a magic eraser sponge to get off any pencil marks and then we started painting. The painting was the easy part.
We finished the wall at 10 p.m. - ELEVEN HOURS after we started, but look how cool it turned out!
