Hello friends, I hope you had a great week.
Today I’m sharing a new Craft Room Wall Art project I’ve been working on. Lately I’ve really wanted to get my craft room finished up. I feel like this is a project that’s taken forever, because other rooms in the house have taken priority. But this is getting me one step closer, I just need a new desk chair, rug, lighting, and shelves, etc. But other then that, I’m all set., right??! ;-)
So onto the craft!
Craft Room Wall Art
I got this amazing Rustic Wood Frame in the mail from Walnut Hollow and it was such a great size, I wanted to make a piece of Wall Art for the my craft room. I just posted a craft paint storage project and it really inspired me to work on another project for my craft room.
Step 1 – Layout Paint Brushes
I found some great size paint brushes for this project. I decided to use a couple different sizes and I’m so glad I did!
Step 2 – Pick out Paint Colors
Ok now the FUN part, picking out ALL my paint colors for this project. I had a TON of Americana Acrylics Paint colors to choose from, so it was a little harder then I thought it would be. But I finally found all the perfect colors. One thing I did notice, is that I didn’t have a big selections of pinks. So I think I’ll have to fix that problem.
Step 3 – Paint Wooden Pallet
It’s time to paint the frame all white. I used some chalky finish paint for this step. I needed to add a total of two coats, letting each coat dry 20 minutes.
Step 4 – Add Border with Vintage Effects Wash
Now this is a really cool step. I wanted the border to kinda have a farmhouse feel, so I used the Vintage Effects Wash which is probably one of my favorite DecoArt paints right now. I’ve used it on several projects for the house, like this Candle Holder from the Dollar Tree.
Tape off your border first.
Just grab a paint brush and start painting it on, simple as that. I did a total of two coats as well for this step.
YAY it looks so pretty, right!
Step 5 – “Paint” Brushes
This is the step I’ve been SOOO excited to do, painting the paint brushes! Woohoo. The little things that get me excited.
I just poured some paint out and dabbed the paintbrush in. Then I used a smaller brush to fill in any extra spots. I let the paint brushes dry overnight.
They all look so PRETTY!!!
Step 6 – Add Paint Brushes
Now let’s add our paint brushes to the frame. I used some heavy duty hot glue. Those paint brushes aren’t going anywhere.
Here’s the finished project!! I’m hanging it up in the craft room now. I tried to get a pic in there but I think I need to add some more stuff. (Craft room reveal post coming 201……!)
This craft room wall art is an easy project you can have done in no time! You can change colors and personalize it anyway you want. I will be adding more painted paint brushes to the craft room for sure! Such an inexpensive way to add some POPS of color to the craft room.
