Kitchen Wall Art Tutorial: "Giclee" Print, Silverware Art and Painted Bundt Pan

Best Blogger Tips
There was a big blank wall in my kitchen and I kept tossing around different ideas around in my head on what to do with it. Here is the final result.

On my search I ventured upon these two photos.
I especially loved this one with it's mix of vintage flair and clean modern lines.

I bought a ton of frames from the local thrift store. I removed the back from the frame and sprayed it with spray adhesive. I also grabbed some left over navy fabric.

After spraying the board I smoothed out the navy fabric over the top.

I trimmed the fabric to fit, leaving about 1/4 inch around the edge.

I spray painted the frame a glossy white and put the fabric covered board back in.

I took my silverware (also purchased from a thrift store) and slightly flattened the forks and spoons (sorry for the horrible next few pics. I had to take them in my garage).

I did 3 coats on the front and 2 coats on the back of the silverware.

Play with the layout of the silverware until you come up with something you like. I used hot glue to attach the silverware to the fabric board.

To finish of my wall I used another thrifted frame that I spray painted white. I used the same technique to attach a swatch from the Joel Dewberry Modern Meadow line into the frame.

I also love the modern word giclee print. I used photoshop to create it. Instead of printing it off at home I printed it off at Costco in a luster finish. The frame I used was another thrifted/spray painted white.

The bundt pan was also thrifted and spray painted navy.

Cost break down:
   Frames: $3
   Print: $1.50
   Silverware: $1.50
   Bundt Pan: $1.50
   Spray Paint: $1
   Fabric: Free

   Total: $8.50

Oh, yeah. I'm cheap like that.

Love it.
