Copy Cat - Wall Art

Pin It
I found these beautiful pieces of wall art on Ballard Design.  If I had some great stencils or the time to reproduce a similar look with with a paint brush, I would have.  Unfortunately, I don't.

It wasn't so much the detail for me, but the need for a splash of color over my bed.  I decided to create this look with wood frames, like the one I built here and here.

Then, I spray painted the frame.  I used mod podge to adhere the paper to the frame.

If I find better paper or even a great wrapping paper with a larger pattern, I'll be changing the paper.  However, this is the perfect little addition to the vacant space over the bed.

Thanks for looking.

  1. It looks very nice, adding color and design to an otherwise bare wall. ...and cost very little. Looks great.

  2. Thank you. Now that I'm looking at it, I think I might add three more and space them next to each other like in the inspiration piece. Hmmmm...

  3. That is a super great idea! I am going to do something similar that I saw at Target. 3 12x12's with scrapbook paper on each and I am going to try to paint a black tree on it!

  4. Paint and design companies like Sherwin Willams etc. will give you or for a small fee sell you their outdated sample books. I started getting them 10 years ago for craft projects and have used them for cards, scrapbooking etc. They would be great for a project like this!!

  5. Forgot to mention what kind of sample books....wall

  6. You are right, those would be great for this project. Great idea.
