DIY Monogrammed Art

This weekend has flown by but has definitely been a relaxing one. I cleaned my house, finished all my laundry, baked, cooked, ran errands and then had a great date night with Lise last night. We made another feast of appies and enjoyed a great chat and late movie. Today I’m spending the afternoon with my hubby and hopefully another relaxing night.

Anyways….. time to share my latest creation. Welcome back all my diy’ers! This is my favourite diy project that I made the other weekend. With these finishing touches of decor up, I can finally say that our master bedroom makeover is complete! And I LOVE IT! The before and after pictures are coming soon! Our headboard is fairly low and since we have such a large wall behind our bed I wanted to find just the right size of picture. My options were to spend several hundred dollars on one large painting or make my own headboard art. Since I wanted something clean, crisp and simple I chose to make it myself. I found these three picture frames at a garage sale for $5 each. They had no backing, no glass and no hanging clips, just the simple rustic metallic frame. So my hubby cut out some white particle board to fit inside each frame and then it was my turn.

All you need:

frames with backing (no glass)

wooden letters

white spray paint (or you can buy white letters, they are just more $$)

hot glue gun

picture hanging clips

Since the wood we used to make the backing was already white, I didn’t have to paint that. I simply spray painted the letters, let them dry, glued them on with hot glue, added hanging clips and wa-la! One of a kind (cute) monogrammed art for above our bed. I’ve always loved the traditional his and hers look so this was my take on branding our bedroom (and shot gunning my side of the bed). It cost me under $30 for everything and it turned out exactly how I wanted. I loved the clean white on white look, but there are so many options. You could wallpaper the background, use funky scrapbooking paper, keep a plain background but add patterned letter, paint the letters different colors or write full words in each frame. The possibilities are never ending and once you have the frames it’s fairly inexpensive to switch up what you put inside. Let me know what you create!

My bed and I have a special relationship, we’re perfect for each other. But my alarm clock just hates seeing us together ~ Author Unknown
