It's been awhile since I posted. Sorry about that! The past few weeks have been filled with birthdays, friend's bachelorette parties, and friend's weddings. I can't write for long as I have another wedding this weekend (that I'm in), and I've volunteered my help and support, but I do have a little dining room project to update you on.
I knew that I wanted to make something unique and original for our dining room, but something inexpensive as well. I made up my mind pretty quickly that I wanted to incorporate some silhouette art on our dining room walls.
We recently painted our walls "Nautical Navy" by Valspar. The color was a drastic change, but hubby and I both love it. We knew we wanted our new picture frames to really pop and I think we definitely got the impact that we were going for.
Okay, here are the deets...
- Pictures to use for silhouettes
- Plain white paper
- Black paper
- Oval picture frames
- Rustoleum spray primer
- Rustoleum Ultra Cover spray paint (we chose sun yellow in the gloss finish)
Second, you'll place the cut out silhouette on your piece of black paper.
You will then trace around the picture silhouette...
Next, you will cut the silhouette out!
Repeat this step for all of the silhouettes.
Next, you'll want to trace the paper from the frame around the white sheet of paper you will be using to create your art. It'll look a little something like this...
Then you'll cut out your new oval shape...
And to complete the silhouette art, you'll paste the silhouettes to the plan white paper.
The frames were originally black but I gave them several light coats of the Rustoleum primer and then several coats of the spray paint. This is actually the first time that I used Rustoleum paint, as I'm normally a Krylon gal myself. I chose to go with Rustoleum because I loved their yellow color, but I really loved the Rustoleum brand and I think I might've found my new favorite spray paint.
Anyways, enough babbling, here is the finished product!

Molly, our Great Dane
Moose, our Boston Terrier
And the full view again...
I'm loving it! It was affordable, fun, and easy.
Do you have any silhouette art in your home? x
