You know that one item you have in your home that you never use? You know the one… It may have been a gift, something you inherited, or maybe even a purchase you made with good intentions. Whatever the case may be, I’m almost certain every home has that one thing that’s just sitting in a cabinet or closet taking up space and collecting dust.
Here’s my take on a rustic kitchen wall art gallery.
Step 1: painted the trays (front and back) with chalk paint. I love that there is no prep with the chalk paint.
Step 2: painted accessories with metallic spray paint.
These large utensils were less than $2 each at Walmart.
I found these metal hanging letters for $2.99 each on clearance at Michaels.
Step 3: attached the utensils to the square tray using crazy glue
Step 4: put inspirational words on the larger tray using alphabet stickers and sealed with modpodge (I used matte finish)
Quick tip: if you try this, stick the letters on lightly until you get the spacing right before sticking down completely.
Step 5: assembled my gallery display.
One last step I took, before putting these on the wall, was using a matte finish acrylic spray sealer to minimize paint chipping (this is optional).
This project cost was around $25 (which includes the cost of the spray sealer). I really love how this came out! What do you think? Have you created your own wall art? Leave me a comment, I would love to know your thoughts. Thanks, and God Bless.
