DIY Eiffel Tower Ombre' Wall Art

If you are looking to customize some artwork for a room makeover, look no further than scrap wood, chalk paint and an inexpensive vinyl decal. This DIY Eiffel Tower Ombre' Wall Art is one of my favorites, that I made for our neighbors teen daughter's room makeover. 

DIY Eiffel Tower Ombre' Wall Art - LeroyLime


When cleaning out my craft room, I found two rolls of vinyl decals that had been purchased somewhere for $1.99 each and since they hadn't been used yet, I decided to turn them into customized wall art for Victoria. Her room is done in black and white with pops of teal, so I pulled three colors of chalk paint from my stash, cut some sponge pieces and found this perfectly sized piece of scrap wood in the garage.

I started with the lighter color first and daubed away...Going back over sections that needed more paint and then carefully marrying them together where they met. Once it was completely dry, I cut out the Eiffel Tower decal and placed in on the ombre' background. Make sure you have a clean cotton cloth handy to press out any air bubbles. Then a coat of polycrylic to seal everything together and help prevent the decal from coming off in the future.

Victoria was so thrilled with this one, she requested I paint a large wooden V the same way, I'll post that project once it's complete.

Friday Favorites - Week 337

Welcome Friday, cooler weather, changing leaves and pumpkin spice everything! I have yet to decorate our home for fall, trying to hold out till at least mid month and a bit of sweater weather to arrive here in Virginia. Until then, I'm swooning over every fall themed aisle at Home Goods, Target & Michael's...and enjoying all the fun fall photos on Instagram and Pinterest. 
Welcome to this week's Friday Favorites Linky Party!!
