Bare Walls?

post by Village Antiques

Do you have a bare wall? Not sure what to do with it?

 

You’re in luck. Today I will be sharing how to fill up those big empty walls with a few of the tips I used from my last project.

 

This is a quick and easy project you can do to create stunning, centuries old European style in your home.

 

This is one of my favorite projects because it will never go out of style.

 

While working on the finishing touches in my guest room, I was on the hunt for a collection of art to fill up a big empty wall.

 

I stumbled upon these and loved them!

Sadly, they were too large for my home.

 

So instead, I took this on as a project. Here’s how you can get the same look.

Step 1: Find an assortment of mix and match frames in various sizes from Village Antiques, flea markets, and your own collection. Don’t worry if they don’t match!

Step 2: Select THREE paint colors to use on your frames.

Step 3: Paint your frames. Our paint gives you full coverage in just one coat! Best of all, it dries in just 20 minutes and never has a foul smell. So you get to see the results instantly!

You can simply use a collection of engravings. One of my favorite tips, arrange pressed flowers on vintage letters and music sheets.
