Stuff you will need:
- Around 45-50 paint sticks
- A 7" round mirror (I got my at Michael's for around $3)
- A 7" wood or plastic embroidery hoop
- Craft paint (2 different colors of your choice)
- A paint brush
- A square piece of wood about 9"x 9"
- A picture hanger
I chose for mine to do a grey and a lighter grey. So I ended up just using the bottled grey and then for my top layer mixing the grey with the white to make it a little lighter. I also happened to have on hand this metallic paint that I mixed in to make it have a little bit of a shimmer. It didn't make a huge difference, but I liked it that way.
Next start adding the second layer. Just center the sticks over the joints of the lower layer. When your finished you can caulk any gaps that show, then paint over the caulking. And your done!!
I love that this project is so cheap, and can be made in any color you need to fit your decor.
It also worked out perfect for this wall in our master bedroom. To the left of the mirror are french doors that I love to have open. So I knew I needed something that would sit flush against the wall so it wouldn't hit the door.
