Hey all! Michelle Wells here sharing a simple but extremely cool way to make trendy wall art using a clearance frame, scrap wood, Tattered Angels High Impact Paint, Color Wash Faux Finish and Baseboard Mist Paint. I have made an easy Farmhouse Wall Art to show you how it works.
Products used to upcycle the frame:
Tattered Angels High Impact Paint – Black
Tattered Angels Baseboard Mist Paint – Gravel
Tattered Angels Color Wash Faux Finish – White Wash
Rope, Brads, Mini Finishing Nails, Wood Glue
Stapler, Hammer, Sand Paper, Scouring Pad
After lightly sanding the scrap wood, I used wood glue to adhere the two pieces together. Once cured, I used Tattered Angels Baseboard Paint Mist in Gravel, applied with a brush in two coats, allowing the first to dry completely before applying the second coat.
After both coats had dried completely, I used a dry scouring sponge to “distress” lightly.
For the frame, I once again applied Tattered Angels Baseboard Paint Mist in Gravel, using a brush.
After the glued wood boards had set, I used a die cut of stacked farm animals, as a template, and painted the design with two layers of the Tattered Angels High Impact Paint in Black. Once dried, I used light sandpaper to give a slight distress look. I also used Tattered Angels Color Wash in White Wash, over the entire wood board surface, to add an aged look.
The final step was glueing the frame to the wood board using the wood glue once again; adding rope purchased at my local hardware store. I stapled it to the top outer edges, camouflaging the staples with extra large flat brads that I had previously distressed to look aged.
The rustic Farmhouse Wall Art is ready for display.
I hope you’ve got inspired and have your own creative ideas on how to make your own pieces of home decor.
