Jackie explains the rule of thumb for painting a diamond pattern: "The height of the diamond should be twice the width. First measure the width of your wall. Divide by the number of diamonds you want horizontally, use that measurement as the width of the diamond and multiply by two for the height. Using those measurements and blue chalk, draw a grid pattern using vertical and horizontal lines. Find the middle of each rectangle and mark the top, bottom, right and left side. Then connect the dots by drawing lines to form the diamond pattern. Tape each side of the diamond. Paint using a mini roller to fill in the diamond patterns."
