Lately I have been a little obsessed with creating and acquiring artwork for our home. I think I have finally had my fill of blank walls. Art is an easy way to add character and personality to a room and my house is lacking some major personality.
I am slowly making small changes in our master bathroom and when I was given the opportunity for a mini shopping spree at Consumer Crafts I decided to make some art work for this room. We are doing a vibrant beach inspired bathroom. I fell in love with the painted wood art at Pottery Barn. I feel it would be the perfect focal point. I obviously do not have $399.00 laying around so I decided to re-create a more cost efficient DIY version.
I achieved the look I was going for. I think. The materials I used didn’t lend itself to create an exact replica but I cam fairly close. I will probably try to duplicate this look again with real wood at some point.
First you need a few things:
The first thing you need to do is glue your canvases together to make one large surface. This step is not necessary but I really wanted one LARGE piece of art. I used E600 glue and clamped it down until it was dry. I didn’t do this, but I would suggest putting a few nails or screws in there to really make sure it is secure.
Next it is time to bust out the paint. I painted 50 Popsicle sticks in each color. It was crazy. I had every surface covered with them. I am still having nightmares.
