Taking a break from Disney posts for a quick minute so I don’t drive you all nuts to share one of my favorite DIYs to date.
*Originally posted on an in between blog in the Fall of 2017 when I trying new sites & templates… but here we are back on WordPress and it’s a new read here*
Wait, I take that back. I actually have gallery walls all over my house, but my living room lacked the warmth that art can bring. And I’m a little cheap. I will spend on the right things (if I can) but I usually regret expensive purchase and return them very quickly.
And it’s actually been hanging forever, even though I’m just getting to this tutorial.

Then you will want to pour the rest of the mod podge over the top and paint it all over to make sure all is covered for a consistent gloss. I also took my hand over it a few times to smooth out all of the wrinkles as much as possible.
Then you let that dry for a couple days.
I did watch the wood warp a bit but it ended up coming back to flat. If I were to do it again, I would make sure to keep it laying flat on the floor, the entire time while drying.
I was trying to stay as on budget as possible so I ran around to see what we already had.
I found these mini stain cans that only run about $5 or $6 anyways, so not a huge invenstement. I also had some of this Chalked paint left over.
I had originally wanted a natural wood look, but the paint looked better and helped the photo pop.
Then I added a little extra weight…
