A cute and cheap idea for some original wall art. I have this space above my entertainment center that I have been trying to fill for years. No, literally. We have been in this house six years and I have NEVER had anything in this spot that I was happy with or felt like it was appropriate for the space. This seemed like just the thing.
|The big empty. This is really high. The wood in the lower right of the picture is the edge of the mantle.|
|One of the first three full of lumps and bumps :(|
Here is the second pin:
The most fabulous tip ever is that you can fix these bumps with a hairdryer! Amazing! I didn't know that! But it worked like a charm. Coincidentally this pin was actually for the same project (scrapbook paper on canvas.) I also learned from my google search that there is a special Mod Podge for using when working with fabric, but that's for next time. The hairdryer trick worked great.
|After a blow out. Nice and smooth.|
|My husband was amused by the blow drying.|
|This one is my favorite.|
|Close up of the tiles up on the wall.|
|The almost-full effect. The baby pics need to be updated, and the vases are going to get some tall-ish foliage.|
Hanging that was a dusty chore!! But I got the corners while I was up there.
Total cost: $10.80
Total time: 3 hours
Final verdict: I love the look of the tiles themselves. I love having something up in this space. The top of the center needs some tweaking and now I have this great nook in the living area. Time to work my way around the rest of the room!
