Hey friends! Happy Monday! What did you do over the weekend? The engineer and I collaborated on a DIY wall art project, and I am so excited to share our results with you!
For a long time, we’ve had framed photos of our kids hanging above our couch in the family room. While I love my children, and I love photos, I was ready for something different. Choosing art is VERY difficult for me, because I don’t like most of it. ;) I prefer graphic patterns and typography over landscapes and still-lifes.
Farmhouse Style DIY Wall Art
We had plenty of barnwood taking up space in the garage, so I started with that. Our barnwood was pretty “weathered”, so we flipped it over and used the smooth-ish side. I assume that this side was on the inside of the barn?
The engineer lined up three pieces, trimmed them to four feet long, and attached them to each other with a couple scrap pieces of 1×2’s. A couple of hanger thingies were attached to the 1×2’s. He loves it when I talk like that. ;)
I painted the wood with paint leftover from our faux shiplap wall, Polar Bear by Behr. After that dried, I used the Kerala Stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils and a small sponge roller to add some of my favorite charcoal gray (Cracked Pepper by Behr).
