$5 Inspirational Wall Art

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  I was in Dollar Tree and I saw wall art stickers that inspired me.  I grabbed a picture frame and some spray paint, and made an inspirational sign for my home.

Supplies Needed:

Picture Frame

Wall Art Stickers

Krylon Looking Glass Spray Paint

Optional – Black Spray Paint

I removed the glass from the picture frame.

I cleaned it with an alcohol prep pad to remove all dirt, debris, finger prints, and oil.

Once that was dry I took it outside and spray painted it with Krylon looking glass spray paint. It took 2 coats and I let it dry between each coat.  I decided to spray a coat of black spray paint onto the back to give it some depth.

Once that dried completely I put the glass back into the picture frame. I love that the mirror color looked antiqued on the glass.

I added my wall art stickers to the front of the picture frame on top of the glass.

The great thing about these stickers are – if I ever want to remove the stickers, change them, or just leave it as a mirror I can.

I decided to put it in our office and where I would see it every day.  I love how this inspirational sign turned out!

  • What a great idea, Chas! I never thought of spraying the glass in a picture frame to use for something like this. I am thinking about other things that could use that type of treatment. 🙂

    • Thank you Linda, I’m excited about the picture too. I’m even more excited that I can change up the wall stickers on it – seasonal decor, inspirational, etc. 🙂
