MILES REDD DECONSTRUCTED STRIPE INSPIRED VASE

Hello friends,

I’m taking a break from my living room makeover to have some fun with some of my favorite blogging friends.  If your Pinterest feed is chock full of pretty rooms like mine, then you likely have a photo of room designed by Miles Redd.  He’s got incredible talent and creates such beautiful, fun, vibrant spaces.

My friends and I decided to DIY something for our home that is inspired by Mr. Redd.  I opted to go for something smaller in scale.  When I saw his Deconstructed Stripe wallpaper, my gears started turning.  I like stripes.  I have striped cat for goodness sake, so this was an obvious choice!  And the best part… I didn’t spend a dime!  Read on to see how I did it…

I started with a vase that was a DIY fail from another project 😉

I found some large posterboard in my basement full ‘o crap.  It doesn’t have a shiny finish.  It’s pretty thin – almost construction paper like.

I grabbed my yardstick and a pencil and made little tick marks every half inch along both long sides.

Then I grabbed a fine point black permanent marker and used the yard stick to draw stripes across the whole paper, every half inch.  After the lines were drawn, I did go back through and erase any visible pencil tick marks.

Then I flipped the paper over and went to town drawing out random triangles.  I used my pencil and yardstick again.

I cut out the triangles, and flipped them over.  Voila!  I have striped triangles.

I used some decoupage that I received in a swag bag from a conference to glue the triangles onto the vase.  I used a soft 1-inch flat artist’s paint brush to brush the decoupage onto the vase, then press the triangle onto it for a couple seconds and then brush more product over the triangle.

My only method for placing the triangles was the make sure the stripes went different ways if they were next to each other.

So there you have it!  It was really quick and easy.  And it looks pretty snazzy in my kitchen 🙂

    You did such a great job! I love how you cut them into triangles! I would have overcomplicated it!

      Haha, I’ve been trying to de-complicate all things in my life – so I love that you said that! 🙂

    Oh my gosh, I can’t believe you recreated the wallpaper, I thought you had actually used wallpaper. So clever and it looks so good!
