Hi friends! This isn’t a new DIY but it is one that I get emails about quite frequently so I thought I would share it. DIY oversized wall art – an oldie but a goodie for your Tuesday 🙂
In our old house, we had a huge blank space above our sofa which felt even bigger because my old sofa was equally as huge. I toyed around with the idea of creating an above the couch gallery wall sort of thing and even tried it a few times but it never looked quite right. I finally settled on the idea of hanging some oversized wall art behind the sofa. I shopped around a bit but I never found anything perfect for the huge blank wall so I made up my mind to make something myself.
I went to The Home Depot, bought a few supplies, and busted out my all time favorite DIY – oversized wall art made from plywood. You can find my full tutorial on The Home Depot’s blog.
It’s almost been a year since the DIY oversized wall art mission began and they have held up so well. I’m so happy I went with plywood instead of making something more traditional that had to be framed. These made it through the move without a scratch and were the first things up on the wall in our new house.
Besides looking really great, they were super inexpensive to create. I was able to make them for just about $10 each! You guys! That’s a steal for 20×40 wall art!
