If you’re anything like me, you’ll agree that an entire wall of posters just isn’t cutting it for college décor anymore. As Fashionistas/os, our interior space should reflect our personal sense of style and vice versa. The good news is, there are so many easy ways to add personality to your dorm’s bare walls without sacrificing your style. With this DIY metallic wall art, you can add a little glamour and sass to your space all while staying on trend.
What you will need:
- 10×10 Flat wood panel
- Gold leaf kit (includes adhesive and sealer)
- Repositionable vinyl letters
- Foam brush
Step #1: LEAF IT
Start by painting a thin coat of adhesive onto the panel, then lay down a sheet of metal leaf. Use the foam brush to rub the leaf onto the adhesive and seal with kit sealer.
Step #2: LETTER IT
Measure out where you would like your phrase to lie on the panel. Carefully apply vinyl letters using your guidelines.
Step #3: HANG IT
Choose a bare spot on your wall that could use a fun update. Hang the panel with picture hanging strips and voila!
DIY Tip: This metallic wall art looks great with a collection of frames and art. Hang up your array in an asymmetrical arrangement for a fabulous dose of style.
