$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.

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!

    Chas I share everyone’s good wishes for your continued well being. In your post you did a ‘mirror’ ball and glass in a frame. What I’m asking is if you ever sprayed a metal piece which is solid, not glass, if the effect is the same. I’m asking because I found a lovely metal candle holder in the thrift store which could use some love. So outside of painting it silver which might still be done, I like the idea of the ‘mirror’ effect but hate to invest if it won’t work. There are some birds on the piece which I plan on ‘coloring’ with nail polish. Your thoughts?

    1. Thanks for clarifying what you are looking for Ticia. I have used the mirror effect spray on other surfaces and it just comes out silver – it loses the mirror effect. I have tried several other paints to try and get that “shiny” silver effect and I still have yet to find exactly what I’m looking for. Your project sounds fun and I can’t wait to see it.

    Chaz, I know you have gone thru so much in the past. I’m sorry this is another road you have to take. My Daughter-in-law just found out also she has breast cancer and now is going to go thru a double mastectomy. My prayers go out to you. I know in my heart you will get thru this I will keep you in my prayers. You are the most strong person I know.
    God Bless you. Your family also. The sign says it all.
    Lots & Lots of love & Hugs

    1. Thank you so much, Joanne, and luckily I’m through the worst of it now. I’m sorry that your daughter-in-law has to go through this too. Hugs to your family.
