Woo hoo! We are almost all done and ready to reveal the Orchardview Room of our Graystone Beach Coastal Cottage Reno. This week we’re adding a large yet inexpensive DIY coastal decor idea to the bedroom: a painted driftwood wall art piece!
We’ve completed a number of projects so far that we invite you to explore as a part of this cottage bedroom makeover including:
- painting the entire room (including walls and wood trim),
- painting a wood dresser and an refinishing an old brass table lamp,
- making a little nightstand with driftwood legs.
Next week we’ll be revealing the entire room and then the design plans for the next makeover in the cottage: the bathroom! Click to make sure your notified of each step of the Graystone Beach Coastal Cottage reno.
Now, onto our painted driftwood art project…
Supplies needed to make your own DIY Coastal Decor Driftwood Art:
- ½” thick plywood, cut to 18”x48” (or whichever size you’d like) and thoroughly sanded
- straight drift wood pieces ranging from 4”-20” in length (the pieces will be cut in the end, so can be even longer)
- white paint, or ideally paint which matches your wall
- Americana Decor Chalky Finish paints* in Everlasting, Serene, Treasure, and Relic
- paint brushes
- art wall mounting kit or two 1” screws and wire
- airgun nailer
- circular saw
A note about the paints: you can use whichever colours or type of paints you prefer however a chalk-based paint will provide a nice matte finish (rather than glossy) on the driftwood pieces.
How to Make this DIY Coastal Decor Idea
Refer to our video tutorial for making this beach-themed decorating idea.
We love how the driftwood wall art turned out. There’s so much texture, shape and color to see. We’re tempted to try to make a whole accent wall using this technique. Should we try?
