Colorhouse GLASS .02 - green wall with checkered pencil lines DIY

Most of our MAKE THIS projects start with a level and a pencil. Instead of painting over this part of the process, we decided to make it the star of this DIY. For a subtle pattern that has an organic, yet structured look, try this crisscross design.

In order to prevent smudging of the pencil lines, we rolled a coat of Colorhouse untinted neutral base over the top of the grid. This will seal the lines in place without creating a glossy finish. You are all done- great job!
