I am redecorating my guestroom and I found out decorations can cost way too much. I decided to get crafty and make some!
You can make cute wall decor out of spare wood laying around and/or pallets.
I cut the wood to the size I wanted, arranged and nailed, paint/stain, then painted them to look distressed and last I added a cross from hobby lobby for $4.
The distressed look is easy to do:
1. Sand small areas you want to stand out.
2. Paint those spots and let dry. (I used a teal color to match the cross)
3. Rub with paraffin wax ( crafty candle wax at hobby lobby for $3 comes with 3 squares plenty for extra projects) on the areas so the top coat will come off and the under color will show.
4. After that run a piece of Sand paper over the wood so the under paint will show.
That’s it! Now you have a cheap, easy and pretty wall decor!
