DIY Quick & Easy Wall Feature – Chaos HQ Gets Inspired!
A couple of months or so ago I was wandering aimlessly around a Spotlight store looking for a project to do.
After I paced up and down the aisles several times, I settled on some pre-cut Kaiser wood words.
Dream….. Imagine…. Laugh…..
So I got them home, shoved them in a corner for a rainy day and carried on about life as usual at Chaos HQ.
A couple of weeks later I remembered about the words and got them back out.
I undercoated them with some flat white wall paint, and left them to dry.
Another week passed and I finally got to adding some colour to the words.
I chose to go with our feature wall colours so it all would tie in nicely.
I used the dark chocolate brown around the outside of the letters to highlight them, and give them a bit of a 3D effect.
Then I used the chocolate coloured suede paint to do the front of the letters.
Then on another little shopping expedition to The Reject Shop, I came across this bird cage candle holder on the discount table.
Not only a bargain but perfect to go with the words on my dining room wall.
This now sits above our computer charging desk/station, where we deal with business related stuff.
The whole project cost me around $17.00 as I got the words when they were on sale.
What do you think? Effective?
What words would you display on your wall at home?
