Introduction: Triangle Mural Wall Design

About: We are a new 10,000 sq. ft. makerspace in Portland, OR at 7600 N. Interstate Ave with a wood shop, craft lab, hackerspace, tiny home, garden, and electronics lab for the community.

This Instructable is for a Triangle Mural Wall Design. It is a decoration for our makerspace to brighten up the area and inspire creativity!

MATERIALS:

QTY DESCRIPTION

1 Pencil

1 Large T-Square or chalk line

A/R Primer Paint (Dark or Light depending on the colors you choose)

A/R Latex Gloss Paint in many colors (Primary colors plus black + white if you want to mix a wide range of colors)

1 Small Paint Brush

1 Medium Paint Brush

Step 1: Paint the Triangle Wall Design

First, sand and prime the surface of wall. White primer was used because most of the triangle were light colored.

Second, using the T-square, measure out grid on the wall. This wall started with 2 foot squares, then it was divided in to 1 foot squares.

Third, Decide how you want your triangles positioned. An "X" was made with a straight edge in each 1 foot square.

Fourth, paint each individual triangle painting the three corners with the small brush and the middle with the bigger brush. Painting in groups of the same color helps paint more efficiently. Each triangle too 2 to 3 coats of paint.

CONGRATULATIONS! You completed the Triangle wall mural!

    We're so glad you like it! This was worked on intermittently over the course of a few weeks. It probably took somewhere between 20 and 30 hours.
