DIY Bike Art

Welcome to Angela with another amazing tutorial— DIY Bike Art.  Let’s see how she made this awesome art for her son’s bedroom!
***************
Sarah has inspired me to finally finish my son’s bedroom. Her son’s Dr. Seuss room was so cool that I knew it was about time that I finished my son’s room. We moved into our home about a year and a half ago. We had the room painted, and I had the bedding that I wanted. That was it. I figured it was about time that I actually hung some things on the walls. The problem was just deciding what to hang up. The room has one big green wall and I knew that wanted some big artwork to make a big statement when you walked into the room, but at the same time I wanted something simple. After not being able to find something that I was willing to pay for, I decided to try and make something. I am glad that I did. I got exactly what I was looking for and for less than $20. And it was super simple to make. If you are interested in making your own you will need:
3 pieces of particle board
2 cans of spray paint
paint pen
paint
paint brush
projector (I borrowed mine from my husband’s work)
I started by spray painting my particle board. It took three coats of paint and two cans of spray paint to be completely covered.
Once the paint was dry, I lined up the boards right next to each other and I projected my image onto the boards. I then traced the outline of the image with a paint pen.
Then I filled in the outline with paint.
All that was left was to hang up the art with command strips. I spaced each board about 1 inch apart from each other. Now my son now has a big piece of artwork all for less than $20, and I am one step closer to finishing decorating his bedroom.
