I love it so much that I wanted to make a larger piece to hang on my wall for my spring decor. I chose the space above my DIY side table for my new DIY art. The only problem is that barn quilts are square patterns, and a square wasn’t going to work for that space. So my barn quilt wall art became a geometric wall art.
This Geometric wall art can be done in a short amount of time and with a little bit of paint and tape, if you want.
Geometric Wall Art Supplies
Rectangle piece of wood
1 1/2 x 1/2 inch trim
Liquid Nails and caulk gun
I used three pieces of scrap wood left over from my DIY Shiplap Door to make my sign. I glued two small pieces of wood across the back of the boards to make one larger rectangle board. You can simply buy a rectangle shaped piece of wood and go from there.
Using a ruler I measured out the center of my board. I drew a straight line across the board from the center and a line from top to bottom.
Taking the ruler I placed the corner at an angle from the center point and traced the line. Then copied the line on the other side, to form a ‘V’ shape.
You will be making 4 large ‘V’s. Top, bottom, left and right from the center point. I formed the large ‘V’ shapes in the center and kept working inward.
To make it easy I used the width of my ruler as the width of my lines. Use the center lines that you drew to help keep your points all in line.
Once all the lines are drawn in each direction it is time to paint. I opted to not use tape to keep the paint within the lines. If you feel like you need it, go ahead and use it!
I used these beautiful shades of blues and greens from the new DecoArt acrylic colors – Tropical Blue, Royal Navy, Crisp Blue, Open Water, Green Lagoon, and Mermaid Tail.
I didn’t have a set plan for the color pattern. I just let it come together on its own. I used each of the colors once in my geometric art design. It only took one coat of paint to cover each line. For some of the darker colors I watered them down a bit to make them fit more into my spring decor.
I am loving all the new released colors from DecoArt! I think Royal Navy is my favorite of the bunch. It is a really pretty rich navy color.
Once I finished painting I went back and erased any pencil lines along the center line.
To add the white washed look I used DecoArt’s vintage effect wash and dry brushed it across my geometric wall art. For the spots that had to much white I used a paper towel and wiped it down. I think that this adds a touch of a rustic worn look to a modern art piece.
I did a sort of faux frame on this geometric wall art.
The boards I used to make the sign were to thin to do a regular farmhouse sign. I used liquid nails and glued the frame along the edges of the front of the boards.
This is such an easy DIY wall art project! I was able to put this all together in just one afternoon. I like when projects are quick! That means I have more time for more projects!
I found this cubby out thrifting one day and I have been waiting for spring to bring it out! I filled it with succulents, faux of course, and some mini terracotta pots.
I even have some DIY Painted wooden eggs to add to my new spring side table to add a few more pops of blues and greens.
The dining room fireplace got a small makeover. I added my Erickson family sign to the mantel and am loving it there. It was previously in the sunroom, but I have some pretty things changing up in there!
This is just the beginning of my bright bold colors! I have some fun and exciting ideas in the works! I will share them soon!
