Happy Friday! I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July. I had myself a little holiday. Today I’m going to show you how I created these Nate Berkus wall art knock off’s. I’m not sure you can even purchase this wall art anymore. It came out a couple of years ago, and you could get it at Target for $34.99. My version is more thrifty.
I felt I needed something on each side of my newly painted china cabinet. Since I have a busy gallery wall near it, and wanted the china cabinet to take center stage, only something simple would do.
Wood skewers, a little glue, and gold spray paint was all I needed. I had all three on hand, so this project was free to me. The first one I used a hot glue gun. It was messy and hard to work with. The second one I used Tacky Glue, and it worked much better.
I used a picture of the original wall art from Pinterest to follow. After snipping off the points of the skewers, I started copying as best I could.
After laying down 6 skewers, I put 3 on top perpendicular to the first 6. You can see the dabs of glue I laid alongside a skewer.
Then I rolled the skewer over onto it.
Then 2 skewers on top of those coming to a point at the top.
Then 3 skewers across.
Then 2 skewers on top of the last going top left to bottom right.
Lastly, 2 skewers on top going from top right to bottom left. I let them dry overnight before spray painting them gold.
And there you have it. I really can’t imagine spending $70 on a pair of these when they are so easy to make.
I hope I’ve inspired you to make your own wall art.
