DIY Metal Wall Art: From garden decor to kitchen chic!

5 years ago

If you've been following along, you might recall from my last project post about my kitchen makeover that I had some ideas about how I could decorate the space above my cabinets.

I had been wanting to do something above those cabinets for a while, but the space left me pondering ... what to do, what to do ... I just couldn't figure out what in the world I was going to put up there. Then, Holly at Down to Earth Style did a post featuring her mom's gorgeous home, including her cabinet top decor that gave me the first bit of inspiration. Upon digging a bit deeper on Holly's blog, I came across a FABULOUS idea she posted about how she used garden trellises to decorate a dining room! Here is what she did  ...

 

OMG! Genius, right!?! Inspiration hit me like a ton of bricks! While a trellis would obviously be too large, garden edging would be a perfect fit. After a fast shopping trip to JoAnn's and Goodwill, I was armed with the needed supplies to finally get that space decorated. I picked up some odds and ends at Goodwill, but the main feature came straight out of the seasonal section at JoAnn's.

 

The edging I bought had two long prongs, acting as the stakes, that needed to be removed from the bottom of each piece. I got that done in snap with my handy-dandy hacksaw, and voila ... metal wall art. After adding a few decorative elements, including a cute $2 clock from Goodwill, my kitchen cabinet tops were decorated. The entire project cost me less than $20.
