Address Wall Art

Sunday, November 13, 2011


  I was inspired to make my address wall art by this piece at Restoration Hardware.  I wanted something similar but with our actual address.  Mine turned out very different, but I still like it!


To make, I bought an old piece of art at Goodwill, spray painted the frame silver and painted over the picture with some leftover brown paint (the glass broke in the process, which turned out to be a blessing because I could make it more 3-D!).  The letters are just scrap booking stickers.  I printed large numbers to use as a pattern and cut the numbers out of foam paper, then decorated each one a different way:  
Thick silver acrylic paint
 
Black ink pad rubbed on edges
 Numbers stamped with black ink
Silver Gold-Leafing

Here it is hanging in our living room!
