Wall Art Project

When I decide that the color of the walls in the living room should be this blueish-green I knew I didn't want to cover it up with a lot of artwork...So after brainstorming, and roaming around for inspirations...I came up with this little peek-a-boo piece. My hubby brought home a piece of plywood, and I determined the size I wanted it, he cut it, then I started to sketch out the branches and leaves, sorry no pictures of the middle, but I'm sure you can get the gist of it. With a lot of help from my hubby, all the pieces were cut out, and now it was left to me to sand the edges.

Here is a pic of the back to give you an idea of what it looked like before it was sanded and stained

After sanding it down, I chose a dark espresso stain to cover it, I love the natural look of the grain showing up darker, after a few coats I was done.

I flipped the piece over and attached some picture hanging thingys (like that)

Tada the finished product!

This was something I did awhile ago, I wanted to stay in touch while I'm working on some other things...so come back soon to see some more!

Oh and I linked up at:
