After years of haphazardly hanging random frames all over my walls, I have finally committed to a gallery wall. I assumed before I started this project I had enough art to cover the entire wall, but when it came down to it, I don’t have nearly enough odd sized art for my liking. I did have this mirror that had been hiding in my closet for years and it was the prefect size. I did a similar tutorial last November for Frangelico and I thought I’d utilized materials I already had at home.
Step One: I started by painting the mirror black. and scarping off all the excess paint.
Step Two: While waiting for the frame to dry I printed out what I wanted my piece to say. I chose to use the font Silverfake.
Step Three: Slide your print under the self adhesive vinyl, cut out the letters using your Xacto knife.
Step Four: Peel off the top layer of adhesive and adhere to mirror.
Step Five: Paint over adhesive with frosted paint. Let dry and repeat.
Step Six: Slowly peel the vinyl off the mirror. Use Xacto knife to clean up edges. Using a paper towel and bit of Windex, clean off paint chips.
I’m kind of in love with this project. It didn’t take me long and it really add dimension to my gallery wall.
