Reclaimed Wood Wall Art

Hey there!  I am soooo excited to be the proud owner of the new Silhouette Cameo!  This thing is AWESOME ~ check out the first project I made with it!

See that wall art hanging over my couch?  That’s it:)  Here’s how I made it for $25 with my new Cameo!

I alternated 1×6’s with 1×4’s (mine were cut down to 40″).

To hold them in place, I wood-glued and nailed 3 1×3’s to the backside of the boards.  I followed up with one coat of Minwax Dark Walnut stain.

Now for the Cameo to do its magic (oooooo…ahhhhhhh)!!

The Cameo will cut through fabric, vinyl, cardstock, paper and more, up to 12 inches and 10 feet!  That’s right 10 FEET:)   I chose contact paper for this project because I just wanted a stencil.  I then chose a script font from my computer and began cutting:)

I dry brushed over the stencil with a cream-colored acrylic paint and my job was done!

Well…. after attaching this heavy-duty picture hanging kit on the back.  This isn’t super heavy but better safe than sorry;)  Now, mission complete!

This might be my favorite piece I have made for my house:)))  Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Love it! It works so well with your leather couch. Thanks for sharing and that Cameo looks like a great tool.

    Looks great! Now, completely off topic….I WANT YOUR COUCH! we have been looking all over for couches and as soon as I saw yours I now have a picture to help me track down what I want! If you know by chance the brand or how old it is, maybe where you got it, anything it would be so helpful! perhaps you could lift up a seat cushion and it would tell you everything on a tag! I would much appreciate it!

    This is awesome! I don’t have a cameo, but maybe if I kept the design simple enough, I too could have a cool sign hanging in my home! t.xoxoox

    Gorgeous! I’ve been telling my husband I need old wood pallets so I can make something like this. I’m definitely pinning this idea (Pinterest!) so I can do it in the future! Thanks for the inspiration!
