We built our house 11 years ago and over the last few months, I've been in the process of starting to change things. I'm in the middle of a makeover in my formal dining room and I painted the furniture (there will be a post soon about that). Once I started painting the furniture, I decided that the brown walls had to go. The brown walls also went out into the foyer, so both rooms had to be painted. One thing leads to another so some of the artwork had to go too! I couldn't find anything that I liked for over my piano, so my son and daughter helped me make the perfect piece.
I took a trip to my home improvement store and bought 1" x 6" boards, as well as 1" x 2" boards. My son cut the 1" x 6"s to the right length and I painted them with the color Fluff from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.
He cut the 1" x 2"s to frame out the 1" x 6"s and I stained them with VooDoo Gel Stain in the color Tobacco Road. I love the VooDoo stain because it's water based and the clean up is easy.
Once I painted and stained the wood, my son used a nail gun to put them together.
My daughter and I then added a Re*design With Prima image.
All you have to do is rub it on with the stick that is provided in the package.
This has got to be the easiest artwork I've ever created. My son had the hard part, so he may not agree. And, it's perfect for my freshly painted walls!
From what I have found (thank you Google) the translation from French to English is...
Drinking wine is an integral part of life as eating food.
