Earlier this fall I got to help my friend Desiree Hartsock transform the spare room in her home into a Pacific Northwest-themed nursery for their newest addition to the family! There were a few show stoppers in this room, one of which was the hand painted calligraphy accent wall that we designed using different quotes from popular children’s stories.
We also gave Desiree a custom painted growth chart to keep track of how much her little man grows!
The master behind this handiwork? Manayunk Calligraphy. I’ve partnered with Kim, the owner of Manayunk Calligraphy, on past projects, and we knew teaming up for this makeover would be a perfect match. Kim is amazing at bringing ideas in my head to life and actually making them even better than I imagined! This little project actually sparked some inspiration for a new product collaboration called White Wall Rebellion.
White Wall Rebellion is exactly what it sounds like– a rebellion against a boring, blank wall. It’s a call to action to customize and turn your home into a totally personalized and creative space.
Every design is hand lettered by Kim and transformed into a digital file that is sent to you when you purchase a design package. Using a projector, project your design onto the wall space you want to makeover, trace with some chalk or a pencil, then paint in your design, and you’ve got a totally custom piece of wall art and you’ll feel like you have Kim’s mad lettering skills when you really don’t! Ha!
The process is really simple, we have easy to follow directions- I’d give it a Beginner DIY rating. Oh and No projector? No worries! When you purchase a WWR design, you automatically get a 20% off coupon for a projector rental so we’ve got you covered.
Love that growth chart from Desiree’s nursery? White Wall Rebellion has one you can purchase and customize! There are different style tick marks you can mix and match or just use ones that work with your style.
If you’re looking for something completely unique like we did for Des’ nursery, Kim also takes custom orders – we can work with you on your design or if you want to be totally hands off, Kim can even come to your home for a live painting session, and custom paint your wall for you. We recommend using that option for larger more complex designs. With all of these options, there’s really no excuse for keeping your walls the way they are now.
