Geometric Accent Wall

To elevate a dull wall space into an elegant accent wall, Sara, from Sincerely, Sara D., refreshed her space with a unique geometric mural.

Supplies Needed

  • Step 1: Woman on ladder painting entire wall blue


    Firstly, paint the entire wall with a high-gloss finish paint and plan your design. Sara recommends finding an image online and beginning with a grid pattern to create the geometric mural design. To create the grid pattern, Sara used 0.94 in. tape for the lines and used 1.88 in. tape* for the spaces. Begin at the center of the wall – use a level to make sure that the first line is straight. Continue to proceed down across the wall.

  • Step 5 - Close up of woman painting around tape


    Once the wall is a large grid, begin to work on the details by drawing out the pattern in sections.

  • Step 7: Women taping off green wall in geometric pattern


    Now that the pattern is drawn out, take the Exacto Knife and cut away what isn’t needed. Be careful not to press too hard – you need just enough pressure to cut the tape and not damage the wall. Next, create the diamond pattern using fresh tape and cut it with scissors. When the pattern is complete, make sure the FrogTape adheres to the wall by going over the entire wall with a dry paint roller.

  • Used FrogTape on a white Drop Cloth. The back wall is dark blue and has an intricate geometric pattern.


    Finally, add a coat of matte finish paint. While the paint is still wet, carefully peel back the FrogTape and enjoy your new accent wall!

    *If the wall was recently painted, (less than a month), use FrogTape® Delicate Surface Painter’s Tape.
