Art Above The TV
The area above the tv in the family room was a big blank space. I came across several chevron art ideas on Pinterest and especially liked the chevron growth charts. I already made a wooden growth chart but I liked the chevron idea so I used a scrap board to make some art.
I took an old left over piece of oak. It was already stained on one side so I flipped it over and used Minwax walnut stain on it. The same color as our mantle.
Once the board was stained & dry I used some scrap scrapbooking paper cut into strips. The strips are 2.5" wide. I used spray adhesive to adhere them to the board.
I used some left over white paint to paint the areas between the strips of paper.
After I was done painting I pulled the strips off. There was some bleed through with the paint but I didn't care. I then used sand paper to clean p the lines and distress it.
I know it looks crooked but it's very much level. The floor isn't level so the tv stand & tv aren't level.
