While I’m giving a face lift to my office/craft room, I’ve been looking for ways to include budget friendly decor pieces. Using a couple of old frames and some peacock feathers, I created two pieces of wall art that will go well with the theme of the room. This Simple DIY Peacock Decor was quick and easy to put together.
I’ve got quite a few old frames that are stored and are just taking up space. It’s hard to resist them when I spot them at Goodwill for less than a dollar. These two are gold and I knew that I could give them a paint job that would be just right for the space.
I removed the glass from the frames because I want these to be open frames. I used Waverly Chalk Paint in Peacock. I brushed it on one side of the frame at a time.
To get the look I wanted, I used a lint free cloth to wipe away some of the paint, allowing some of the gold to show through.
After I finished painting and wiping away paint, I liked the look of the frames.
To add a little sparkle to the frames, I cut a sheet of card stock to size and used it as backing for each frame.
The finishing touch was to add a couple of peacock feathers to each frame. I positioned them the way I wanted and then lifted them up to add a small line of hot glue to hold them in place.
I’m using feathers that Gloria used for my birthday party decor last year.
This was definitely a budget friendly way to add some peacock decor to the space. I had everything on hand, so it didn’t cost me any extra money to make these. The room is coming along. I’m currently in the process of painting the very large desk in the room. It’s tedious, but I’m making progress. Taking breaks from painting to create a few simple decor pieces keeps me moving along.
Using old frames for new decor pieces is a simple way to coordinate the look of any room. Instead of peacock feathers, any item that reflects the overall decor of a room could be used in the frames.
