diy idea: kellie’s fossil wall

by Grace Bonney

i love hearing about people who’ve taken inspiration from catalogs and recreated the look in their own home. i got inspired by an anthroplogie catalog a few years back and today i’m happy to share this fun diy idea from kellie, who found her inspiration from a fossil catalog. faced with her ‘dreaded long hallway‘, kellie decided to take action. so at 7pm she grabbed an old gold paint pen she had lying around the house and decided to recreate the fossil pattern she loved with her own two hands. all it took was a paint pen, a footstool, and a lot of guts. i LOVE the way her walls turned out and think they’re great inspiration for anyone who needs a little push to try painting or drawing something by themselves on their walls. click here for more info from kellie on the project.

[stay tuned for lauren and derek’s diy project at 2pm!]
