I’m not over ombre, not by a long shot. I don’t know exactly how long it will stick around, but I am totally cool with it occupying design space for quite some time. So with that said, I have an ombre post today featuring ombre walls from Design Sponge. I am seriously crushing on their use of ombre on walls and if I can find the patience, I think I am going ot have to give ombre walls a go myself. Speaking of ombre walls, how amazing would they not be as a ceremony backdrop!?
Ok to be fair, to call this a DIY is kinda outta whack, its more like a project. In my opinion a DIY is something that can be put together fairly easily with not a huge fuss factor. This kinda screams high on the fuss factor to me, but the payoff, to me, is amazing. The post shows the steps that Rebekah of Wild Ink Press took to create this wall, which in this case, was actually used for their booth in an upcoming exhibition. The project definitely requires space & time, they estimate roughly 6-8 hours. The overall cost is fairly inexpensive, but the use of a spray gun could make it difficult for some, though I am sure one could be rented. Click here to head to the full tutorial.
So I am sure your thinking to yourself, hey thanks for showing me a wall, hum isnt this place about weddings? Practical application, got it, so why I have passed along this Ombre nugget you ask? I could see this used in a variety of ways actually. This could be an amazing alter backdrop, a stunning way to divide a room, a fun photo op area, a unique way to create an outdoor seating area, albeit large, but a pretty outstanding start to escort card display, lining the walls of your space filled with photos of the couple in the past. There are so many ways to incorporate this, you simply have to find what works best for you and your wedding. So are you a fan? Will any of you be adventurousness enough to tackle a full on wall for their wedding?!
