Affordable Wall Art

I wanted to add a simple yet unique feature in my dining room. Our theme here is Farmhouse style with a Modern twist.

To start, you have to gather up the supplies that you need.

Starting

Here I used 5 frames from Dollar Tree

Frames

A holder from Christmas Store

Holder

Some chalk paint from Walmart (I used this in a previous project).

Paint

A  paint brush, and some super glue and E6000 glue.

Glue, Brush & Paint

I started off by removing the glass and back section from each frame and pushed the frames holder pins back so it wasn’t visible and can lay on the wall flat.

I then placed thin strokes of paint to cover the entire frame and allow to dry before I placed a second coat on.

Once dried, I place the 4 frames 2.5 to 3 inches apart horizontally and vertically.

Frame Measured

Apply slightly heavy containers on top of each frame to make sure it doesn’t move when you start to glue products together.

I took the final frame and put the glass back in it and push the back frame holders unto the glass to keep it from falling out.

I place that frame on top of the other frames 6.5 to 7 inches in length and height from each frame that is laid down to center the main (5th) frame before adding the holder.

Once position correctly, I added a dab of E6000 glue (no bigger than a dime) to each part of the frame connecting the 5th frame to the other frames that are laid down.

Glue pieces together

Next I added E6000 glue to the back of the holder and make sure it was center by measuring 2.5/3 in height and 5 inch in length on all sides of the glass to make sure the holder is centered. I later realized the E600 glue wasn’t holding the holder to the glass firmly for me, so I added some super glue (also purchased from the Dollar Tree). Within a few minutes the holder was attached and solid.

Drying Product

I allowed this project to dry completely over night before hanging it up.

The final product came out great. You can add a flameless tea light candle or flowers to it to add an extra spice to the wall art. This is the first product to my Farmhouse Dining Room with a Modern twist.
