Monogram Wall Art

monogram wall decorI’m finishing up some last minute projects for my big Kitchen reveal on Monday and I needed something for a blank wall right when you enter from our Great Room.

I thought a monogram would be a nice touch, and the final product only cost me about $7 for new supplies. Come take a look…

I gathered my supplies:

  • Scroll frame ($4 from Michaels, used 40% off coupon)
  • Large H monogram letter ($3 from Michaels)
  • Mod Podge
  • Brush
  • 1 piece scrapbook paper (25¢)
  • Paint
  • Dark Wax

I first gave the scroll frame a coat of Pure White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. You can really use any acrylic paint; this is just what I had on hand.

When the paint dried, I gave it a quick coat of dark wax to age it a bit.

Ain’t the final effect purdy? I love dark wax in the crevices of wood.

Next it was time to work on the actual monogram. I traced out the monogram letter on scrapbook paper and cut it out.

Use a little Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the letter and you’re ready to hang. I put up the pieces separate with the H floating inside the frame. Perfect little craft for my kitchen that cost me less than $7 of new supplies. Gotta love that.

I wish I could show you some better photos of this,
but I don’t want you to see the rest of my kitchen quite yet. Stay tuned!

    I’m secretly obsessed with monograms, and I love this. It turned out so classy. I feel like this is a piece you could do a lot with, constantly change and update it. Love the projects that evolve. Thanks for sharing!

    Did you get the frame recently? I looked for those a month ago and they said they where only there for spring. Thanks

    I love the monogram picture. It’s a great economical projects that looks expensive. Lovely! Do you know where I can find Annie Sloan paint in Ontario, Canada?

    Love!
    Do you use the big flat brush of AS’s for the wax? I bought it, and it was pricey, and I felt like I got too much wax on the piece I was working on.
