Kitchen Wall Art!

Standard

I cannot wait to share another Modpodge and canvas project and this time it is for Kitchen 🙂

Who doesn’t love kitchen decor quotes that are encouraging, humorous and fun.  And this one is just perfect!

So, when I first saw this wall decal I was very excited to order one but it didn’t take long to realize that there is no room for wall stickers in my kitchen 😦 I was disappointed, then after a little thought something popped –  why not a wall art?

That’s it, took a screenshot of the picture from google images, cropped it and changed the effects to old photo and antique look.

And with material already on hand the total cost of the project is $4 🙂

The process is very similar to my previous post “DIY Canvas Wall Art

The only difference is here I painted the edge of canvas black to match the old photo look of the photo print. Also, it matches our kitchen appliances 🙂

While the paint is drying cut your photo to fit the canvas may be 1/4 inch less.

Add a layer of Mod Podge on to the surface of canvas.

Position the photograph on the canvas well, it should lay flat without any air bubbles.

To keep the glossy look I skipped adding another layer of Modpodge over the photo 🙂 Let it dry.

And Tadahh….. a beautiful handmade piece of art is ready!

If you don’t have room to hang on your kitchen walls place it on top of kitchen cabinets or countertop like here 🙂

Isn’t that fun, fast and cheap 🙂

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
