I adore this Silhouette Wall Art Tutorial from Lowes
! I love the raw pattern of the plywood inside the outline of the silhouette. It would even be fun to try different surface mediums for different effects. Or you could stain the piece before you paint the outer part, the possibilities are really endless. So grab a loved one, a pet, even a stuffed animal and take their photo and try this!

Every time I buy paint, I end up taking a ridiculous amount of paint chips to the point I feel like I am stealing.
If you happen to have some stashed, great! If not...while I don't condone theft, next time you are at your hardware store, pick up some of these bad boys and see what you can create!

I have been looking for the perfect piece of wall art to hang over my couch but had been having a hard time finding the right one. Recently, I have been seeing a lot of great colorful wood wall art pieces and fell in love with them. My dad happened to have a pile of wood strips from an old project doing nothing but collecting dust so I offered to take them off his hands.
Priced anywhere between $600 and $1100, these beautiful statement pieces can be done with some time, lots of painting and patience for under $150.
