All That Glitters Is Gold {DIY Wall Art for $0)

I’ve been itching to get this house decorated.  Thankfully, with some Christmas decorations, our house looks like a home, but those are getting taken down ASAP.

Bah humbug.

Sorry, but I am ready to have my un-cluttery house back.

So now that we have our furniture in the front living room, I am ready to get some things hung up on the walls.  I’m thinking I want to create a gallery wall or two.  Here are a few things that are inspiring me:

Rob says I am a hoarder, but I prefer to think of myself as thrifty.  I’ve been hanging on to this stupid Eiffel Tower picture I bought years ago.  (French bathroom… wtf was I thinking?!)

I knew I could spray paint it vs just tossing it, so here is what I did!

I just decided how wide I wanted the stripes.  I traced them taped them off with Scott’s Blue Painter’s Tape.

Spray paint does wonders.  I started with a few coats of white.  Once it was dry, I taped off the rest to spray paint the black.  After a few coats of that and more dry time, I added the heart with craft glue and gold glitter.

I love it!  The best part is that this cost me $0.  I already had everything I needed.

I can’t wait to finish a gallery wall and update you on the finished project!

Do you have any wall art that you have created?

Are you a fan of gallery walls?

What’s one decor item you look back on and wonder wtf you were thinking?
