In my last apartment, I added gold polka dots to my entryway. I wanted to do something similar in my new apartment, but decided to go with triangles this time. I found this great shop on Etsy, Happy Valley Goods, and loved their connected triangle wall decals. I ordered them in gold (no surprise) and just finished adding them onto the walls a couple days ago. Spoiler alert: I love the result. Dare I say, even more so than the polka dots in my last place!
As with the dots, the triangles were easy to put on and the measuring took more time than actually placing the triangles on the walls.
Just a few things needed to complete the look!
- Step stool
- Tape measurer
I started at the top and measured the spacing between each decal and the height on the wall and made marks with the pencil (that could be easily erased later).
After the top row was done, I decided to just estimate the rest of the triangles going down the walls. Each wall was a different size and each had a couple pieces of art so there wasn’t an exact number of inches or particular way I could calculate each section.
I changed my mind a couple of times on this wall below but the great thing about the decals is that they just peel right off and I could adjust the placement easily when I realized they were too close together. This is the result of three tries:
I got a handle on the spacing and applied the same technique to the remaining walls and was finished in no time!
Final results below!
There were a few triangles leftover and I had a random idea to put them on the little jut-out beam between my dining area and kitchen!
