Yes, you read that title right. This project is the always known and sought after wood painted decor piece. There is always a aisle, or possibly even a store selling these… right? Ok, I know it is a weird name, but such a fun, cute, and easy project. I was looking for a way to update my fireplace mantel from the spring decor into summer. I decided to challenge myself and not buy a thing for it. Everything for this project as well as the fireplace mantel decor were things I already had at home. Don’t you love reusing leftover things?
I started with this idea from some random pieces of wood I purchased a while ago. We cut them down into seven 9 inch long pieces.
All painted up and ready to be unified in holy wood painted decor matrimony. These pieces were blown all over my yard a few minutes after this picture was taken. Trying to multi task and keep an eye on the kids and paint outside was not the best idea. Usually I stick to painting in the garage. Less wind, lesson learned.
I paired this look with a few paper flowers I made a few weeks ago, you can find the full tutorial for those here. I actually just attached a piece of tape to these, I did not want to commit to having them in the corners permanently. So this is a trial run, we are seeing each other but have an open relationship. I may or may not commit to hot gluing these to the decor piece.
