Black Geometric Wall

I know everyone is curious about the black wall... What's it made of?  How is it attached to the wall?  So here's everything you need to know to make your own and how ours came about...

Our living room is a busy space with all the artwork and the infamous couch and I really wanted the black wall to be simple so it wouldn’t compete with the gallery wall but I didn’t want it to be boring and plain either.  I’m not exactly sure where the idea came from but I knew that texture would be a good solution.

We had a thin sheet of plywood laying around so I traced a ton of triangles and Tim helped cut them out with a miter saw.  Of course our dog Bo played a part in this too.  I had several triangles laid out on the ground trying to determine a pattern and just after I snapped a picture Bo came running through and scattered the edge of the layout which turned out to look pretty interesting so I ran with it and used his thoughtful design on the wall.  I used matte black spray paint on the top of the triangles and left the edges raw (the black wall is painted with Behr Broadway in a semi-gloss) then used a nail gun to attach them to the wall.  TaDa!
