My sister is in the middle of redoing her bedroom. Her color scheme is a pretty coral color, black, white, and gold. So a couple weeks ago, while I was over the house, she asked me to help her complete a monogram wall she was building. She had purchased a couple Ks from the store. I told her I’d make her the rest. What are crafty, big sisters for, after all?
That afternoon, I hopped on my Darby Smart account and we went shopping for supplies to finish my sister’s monogram wall. We decided on a striped canvas with a gold K in the middle inspired by this Darby Smart project. Then, I made a lace stenciled K spray painted in gold and another K covered in gold leaf. Basically, I just love gold and if I can cover something in gold, I will. That King Midas was on to something!
All three of these projects were finished in one afternoon while I was hanging outside in the sun. So easy! While my sister was at work and I was visiting with my dad, I finished hanging her monogram wall. The best part was showing her the wall when she got home. My sister loved her wall! The lace stenciled K is her favorite.

A monogram wall gives a room a personal touch. If you want to build your own monogram wall, make or purchase letters in different sizes, colors, and patterns. Hang a larger focal piece first in the middle of the wall. Then, scatter other letters around that focal point to cover the wall.
