DIY automobile art
Last week I finished these cute signs for my sons room. Mr. C is thrilled to now have cars and airplanes hanging on his walls. I had been looking for some automobile art for a few months and never found anything I liked. What’s a girl to do? DIY! :)
We used the dremel to create the wood signs. I already had MDF laying around, so I was able to create a hole for the nail with my trio. If you need to get wood cut, you can head to Lowes and they will cut out the wood for you. They are awesome!
o get a straight line, lay a piece of tape down on the wood and begin to cut slowly. My husband cut this one. We had fun seeing who could cut a straighter line. Never hurts to have a little contest, right?! ;) The dremel trio really is AMAZING! It can cut through practically anything!
After my boards had been cut and sanded I stained them with a dark walnut. I did this so that the dark would show through when I distressed them later on.
Then I painted them white with a couple coats of white paint.
Then I cut out the design I wanted with my CAMEO. I used the negative space as my stencil. You could create your own stencil with freezer paper as well.
Next I painted in the negative space using red, green and blue. Once the paint was dry, I distressed them a little around the edges and they were good to go! They are perfect for my son’s room (more pics to come)!
I had a lot of fun making these signs for my sons room! Love how they turned out.
