Material Needed to Easily Update a Thrift Store Wall Art
Thin Tipped Paintbrushes
Step-by-Step Tutorial on How To Easily Update a Thrift Store Wall Art
So the Idea was to use all the gorgeous Acrylic Paints from DecoArt that you see above and use them to repaint over the existing Wall Art in the Frame.
First take out the Art Piece from the frame and set the frame to the side.
The existing Wall Art had a lot of flowers, leaves and butterflies design.
You need to have a really thin tip paintbrush for this project so to stay within the lines of the existing design.
I started off with the flowers and painted over with a mix of Violet and Orange acrylic paint colors.
I also painted a few of the flowers with yellow.
For the leaves I alternated between the light and green paint colors.
I also added white dots in the middle of the flowers later on when it was dry.
This whole process is so therapeutic and honestly so much fun. It’s like a coloring “book” experience but for adults and on a Wall Art.
When the design part of the Wall Art was completely, the only thing left was to fill in the brown gaps of the original painting.
I used the bright Cobalt Teal color and with a very thin brush went ahead and painted all over the Wall Art.
For the frame I wanted to paint it completely white so to really brighten it up as the original brown was really Boring.
I used a fluffy round brush and gave the Frame about two coats of the white Acrylic paint.
Lastly the frame had a few circular shaped designs on the front which I decided to paint over using the same colors I used on the Wall Art.
I think adding this little detail really made a difference and tied the whole Wall Art together.
And there you have it.
Using such bright gorgeous Acrylic Paint colors transformed the whole Thrift Store Art.
It is so much more lively and bright now.
