I get really bored of what's on my walls, so I gotta switch it up a lot and I HATE spending a lot of money for something I know I'll be sick of in a year or so. Plus, I got a lot of white wall space and it can be a fortune just trying to fill it up. So I upcycled.
I wish I had a better before pic, but these metal-looking babies were framed and glued onto a blue background. Pretty, but too dark and gothic for me. They were like those pictures you can buy at Kirkland's. They were probably about 3-4 years old and My Sis didn't want them anymore.
I kinda have a light European, Paris-like look in my bedroom, so I wanted them to look more like stone instead. So I used simple acrylic paint to solve the problem.
I used white and a very dark brownish-black color. And I just mixed it like you see in the pic. I left streaks of both colors so it would look like stone.
Ta-da! This took me 10 minutes max. Don't get to serious about making it look perfect because you want it to look natural.
Then I tore out the back of each frame that these came in. Then usingCommand Large Picture-Hanging Strips, White, 4-Strip I stuck them on the wall. So when I get bored of these in a few years I won't have marks or nail holes all over the wall.
Very easy project to fill up some wall space (and it didn't cost me a dime).
Pin it to remember it!
