Cut a 9” triangle out of cardboard. Choose the location for your biggest triangle- we put ours is 12” in from the left side of the desk. Trace first triangle- aligning top of triangle cut out with the pencil line. Compile 4 triangle shapes to make 1 big one. Trace triangles on either side and top of bottom of your big triangle in a pleasing pattern.

Starting with your biggest triangle, tape off on the lines. Be sure to put the tape on the outside of your pencil lines to minimize touch up.

Important tip: Seal the tape with the color of the wall underneath to ensure a straight edge. The bleed thru from the tape will be unnoticable since it matches the wall underneath. We used Imagine .02 as the color on our office wall.

Start filling in the triangles, being sure that the paint on the adjoining triangle is dry to the touch before putting tape over it. You can use a hairdryer to speed the process. This whole project took us less than 2 hrs- thanks to some hot air!
