The items you choose to hang on the walls of your home serve as the accessories that help to define your style. Creating unique pieces to incorporate into your interior design can be a great way to add elegance and style to your home. Working with wood stains is a simple and creative way to generate wall art.
Here are two projects you can complete using wood stain that will contribute to the ambiance of your living environment.
1. Large Clock
If you are looking to add some rustic elegance to your home, then hanging a large clock on the wall can be beneficial. Using some dark walnut wood stain and white paint, you can easily create a unique clock for your home.
Start by joining some planks of wood together using a couple of 2x4s and wood screws. You can use low quality wood with a lot of knots and other imperfections to achieve a rustic look. Apply a coat of walnut stain, then dry brush some white paint over the dried stain to create a weathered look.
Purchase a set of clock hands from your local craft store, and install according to the manufacturer's directions. Creating a large clock using walnut wood stain and white paint is a simple way to add a unique piece of functional art to the walls of your home.
2. Ombre Sign
Adding signs that feature your favorite quotes can be a great way to personalize the walls of your home. You can use some wood stain to create a custom ombre sign that will be sure to add to your home's ambiance.
Start by joining some planks of wood cut to your desired size by screwing each plank into a single 2x4 to create the base of your sign. Next, visit your local home improvement store to purchase some wood stains. Look for a few stains in varying degrees of lightness. Apply the stains to your sign boards in a gradient pattern, starting with the darkest stain on top and working your way to the lightest stain on the bottom.
Blend the transition points with a soft cloth to achieve a seamless ombre effect, and allow the stain to dry according to the manufacturer's directions. Add your favorite quote in vinyl lettering, and you will have a creative piece of art to hang in your home.
