Helloooo Girl Creative friends. I’m Kayla from Home Coming, and I’m so excited to be here as a guest contributor!
My husband, Justin, and I are DIY and home bloggers with a lot of love for updating a house on a budget. Justin is a carpenter by day (so he’s handy) and I’m in advertising (so I’m creative), so we’re the perfect team for taking on the task of updating our 1920’s Minneapolis house. Check out the progress we’ve made on our home and other DIY projects!
I strongly believe that everyone should be able to afford beautiful art for their home – and DIY’ing art is one of the ways to achieve that. DIY’ing your own art means that it can be anything you want it to be! I’ve found, that unless you’re a talented artist, the geometric or abstract art are the easiest to achieve. Check out the oversized abstract canvas I painted or the DIY Art Collection I painted for our master bedroom.
How to Paint Geometric Wall Art
Today, I’m here to show you how to paint a really simple piece of Geometric Wall Art. It’s a piece that honestly anyone can achieve in 30 minutes or less!
The instructions for painting geometric wall art are super-duper simple. Once you’ve determined the design you want to paint, tape it off using blue painters tape. This comes off of the painting paper really nicely. I decided on a multi-triangle design using four colors from our master suite color palette.
Using BASIC Acrylic Paint from Micheals , I started mixing a very small amount of each color that I wanted to use. Since I was only doing one triangle of each color, I didn’t need much paint.
Start with painting two triangles that aren’t touching. Paint, and allow for them to completely dry before taking up the blue painters tape and reapplying for the remaining two triangles. Note: Unless you want a thick white stripe between each triangle, be sure to reapply the painters tape between the painting of each color triangle.
Allow to dry and the piece is ready to be framed! Simple as that.
For only 30 minutes and the $9.99 cost of the frame, we have some beautiful new art for our home!
I hope you all enjoyed this simple project and find ways to bring beautiful art into your home too. And don’t forget to swing by Home Coming to check out more of our projects!
