We LOVE repurposed home decor ideas! 😍
If you have some out-of-date home decor that you don’t want to throw out but are not sure how to refresh it, then this week’s Happy Friday reader Tiphanie has a great idea for you!
She transformed a piece of wall art into something more modern without spending a fortune. It now fits her current style and kept it out of the landfill – Win win!
I had a big canvas print hanging above the bed in our master bedroom. As time went on, my style changed and I wanted to give our bedroom a make-over. I switched from a more traditional style to a modern farmhouse theme. I wanted something new to go over the top of our bed but everything that I liked was more than I wanted to spend. I decided to DIY it in order to save some money.
I took down the existing wall print and my husband so graciously spray-painted it white for me. I was recently gifted an Etsy gift card for $25, so I found a seller on there that custom-made a large vinyl sticker with a saying that I really liked that I could use on my sign. I was so excited for it to arrive!
After the spray paint dried, (we allowed a full 48 hours to ensure proper application) and my vinyl lettering arrived, it was time to remake my old wall art into something new! It worked like a charm and was a very easy process. My new sign only cost me the price of a can of spray paint since I had the gift card and the original sign. Many of these types of signs that I was looking at were between $79-$129. So this is a total win for me without spending a fortune!
