Personalized Transportation Wall Art

transportation art

Abby from Just a Girl and Her Blog is currently giving her boys’ room a makeover, and they needed art! Abby says she’s too cheap to buy “real” art and knows she can get exactly what she wants through DIY. Abby found a Land of Nod piece that provided awesome inspiration and made her own with basically a stack of scrapbook paper and scissors. I love what Abby says about creating this artwork for her boys: “One of the reasons I love projects like this, though, is that even though it’s not perfect, I was able to give my boys a fun, unique piece of art for their room that they will always know was a gift to them from mommy. There’s something really satisfying about putting your own personal touch on a space, especially when it’s for someone you love!” SO true!!!

Print Your Own Vintage Wall Art

Kerri from Twin Leaf Cottage was inspired by 18th Century armorial art from Restoration Hardware to create her own “super quick, super easy and super inexpensive wall art project.” Sound good??? Kerri isn’t kidding when she says this project is super easy. All she did was find a couple of vintage ephemera images online and have them printed at a copy store for a mere dollar. Kerri then placed her quality prints into frames for her own DIY wall art that looks crazy similar to those pricey prints from RH!

Oversized Vintage Flashcard Art

Our playroom is the first thing guests see as soon as they walk into our home. In an effort to spruce things up a bit, I have been giving the space a little TLC and making some changes, including knock-off wall art. Yesterday on Infarrantly Creative, I shared how I created these larger-than-life vintage flashcards. I love the clean look as well as the fact that they are humongo and take up a good bit of wall space on the cheap. Woot woot!

DIY Document Art in Minutes

Allison from The Golden Sycamore included a piece of DIY document art in her fall “mantel” this year that she says cost pennies to create compared to the cost of her inspiration. Allison simply found a French document image from The Graphics Fairy, printed it out, and placed it in an updated Goodwill frame. How easy is that???

Easy Framed Sheet Music Art

Becca at From Gardners 2 Bergers is at it again with another easy way to create DIY artwork for your home. This go round it was a framed music sheet that caught Becca’s eye. Of course, she looked at it and knew it would be a piece of cake to make her own. I love how the sheet music adds a new element to Becca’s impressive gallery (most of which she’s created herself for next to nothing!).

Show Your State Pride with Map Wall Art

PB-inspired-Map-Triptych-DIY-

If you missed the State Pride Tour that I hosted over at Infarrantly Creative last week, then you missed out! I partnered with 30 other bloggers to create projects in honor of the states we love and call home. Roeshel of DIY Show Off was one of the talented gals who joined me on the tour, creating a map triptych from a Pennsylvania road map. Not only did Roeshel save herself $100, but her maps are much more meaningful since they reflect where she was born and raised.

“Spooky” Typewriter Keys Halloween Sign

Michelle from Chalkboard Blue was inspired to put a Halloween spin on vintage typewriter keys art and create her own “spooky” hand painted sign. In my opinion, the classic black and white, simple design, and vintage typewriter key letters all create a more sophisticated look, which is a rare find when it comes to Halloween décor. Michelle says that her new Halloween sign is one of her faves!

Gold Leaf Bird Art

Naomi of Mrs. Fancee fell in love with gold leaf bird art she saw online… and then fell quickly out thanks to the $300 price tag. Naomi was determined to make her own version using gold leaf paint. She choose a similar background paper to that of her inspiration but chose a white frame for a lighter look. Naomi says, “This was a super easy project with a beautiful result!”
