How to: Make Your Own DIY Large-Scale Graphic Wall Art

Chalkboard Wall DIY

We love a bold, graphic wall treatment - whether type-based, a mural, or ever-changing chalkboard design.

Sugar and Charm have mad wall design skills and they have shared a few tips to help us create our own graphic designs. The trick is to take a small image - printed on a 8.5x11 piece of paper, perhaps, and blow up to whatever wall size you can find. 

Their technique relies on a large-scale chalkboard wall, but you could use markers, paint (or paint markers), or whatever medium you love most. Oh, and this whole thing is quite inexpensive, really, considering the big impact it can create.

If you had a projector (I don't, but if you did) do you think projecting onto the wall and then drawing with the chalk over it would work.

I love the chalk thing, but I rent, so that is not an option for me. For the last few years though I have been fantasising about getting a big square coffee table and turning the surface into a chalk board.
