DIY Medallion Wall Art from an Old Shelf

Deco art chalky finish paint and old shelf used to make a medallion print wall art diy blogger boho chic

Welcome back my Beauties. 
I have been a painting fool, trying to build up a finished inventory again now that we are back from spring break.
One of the fun things is to find old pieces of scrap wood and make fun wall hangings and artwork.
So today I am going to show you how I took an old shelf from an entertainment center and created a fun bohemian fleur medallion artwork.
First things first was to give the old square shelf a quick coat of Deco Arts Chalky finish paint in Preservation

Once the board was dried, I grabbed my Fleur Medallion Stencil and laid it on top of the board.

I used my stencil brush to lay down my chalky finish paint in Keepsake. I loved how the green POPPED on top of the deeper blue paint.

Once the whole piece was dry I distressed it 
and used Americana's Sealer in Matte finish to seal the piece.

Once it was all dry I drilled a hole in each corner and fed some jute cord through and tied them off so if I wanted to I could hang the piece.

For picture purposes I chose to just set it on my mantle.

I love how easy it was to take this old beat up board that used to be part of discarded entertainment center, and turn it into a piece of art that was saved from the scrap pile.
I hope you enjoyed this latest upcycle makeover.
Hopefully soon I will have the furniture makeovers photographed and be able to show you their transformations.
Until next time,
have a BEAUTIFUL day!
