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.

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.

That looks stunning. The addition of the color in the background makes it pop and adds lots more interest to the Eiffel tower. Great job. Pinning.
