Hi Everyone, I’m back again to share a new DIY project. I shared with you in my DIY Sunburst Mirror post that I was redoing my bathroom so this month I decided to make something for that bathroom. I decided on making some wall art from these fun chargers I found at Target on clearance for $2.98. As you can see in these pictures my walls really needed some lovin’.
I had found these chargers at Target for $2.98. When I saw them I “knew” they would make a great foundation for a piece of art and thought they would go perfect with the colors in my bathroom.
Here’s how I did it.
I searched the internet for public domain prints that I could get for free. Here are two FABULOUS sites.
After deciding on the prints I wanted I uploaded them to Sam’s Club and had them printed.
I went downstairs to my scrap room and found 3 12 x 12 pieces of chipboard. I grabbed my can of Rust-oleum Brown Hammered paint and gave each piece of chipboard a coat of paint. I love the hammered affect on the chipboard. It adds texture.
Once the paint was dry I used a hot glue gun and glued the chipboard to the charger.
I then took my photo and using a tape runner I put the photo on the chip board.
Next I took some rope that I had in my craft stash and hot glued the rope on the edge of the chipboard.
Here are the 3 pieces all complete.
and here they are on the wall.
I love my new art with a total cost of $4.50.
3.00 for the charger
1.50 for each photo
I had the chipboard, paint, rope and glue.
I LOVE walking by the bathroom and admiring my new art work. I can’t wait to DIY the rest of the room.
If you like this project, here are a couple more projects I did that might inspire you.
