I bought this metal rack at a yard sale a couple years ago. I have no idea what it was used for previously but I knew I could make something amazing out of it. It’s very big and sturdy and it was destined for greatness. It sat lonely and rusted in my garage while I pondered what to do with it.
I was very excited when I got the chance to try out Modern Masters Metallic Paint collection. I knew that my lonely metal rack would look great in a new coat of Sapphire Blue and had plans to transform the metal into a photo display that doubles as wall art.
“Create Joy” was the theme of SNAP Conference and I thought it was a perfect reminder for me as a creative blogger. I coated chipboard letters in glitter for this look. I attached the letters to the wall art with hot glue. The paper banner came in my swag bag from SNAP and so did the flowers that I used on the magnets. To make the magnets, I simply hot glued buttons to the magnets and then hot glued the flowers to the buttons. I also weaved a white ribbon around the outside.
My kids are two of my biggest joys so I thought it was appropriate to put their pictures on my “Create Joy” photo display.
I absolutely love the shimmery effect of the metallic paint. I think it adds the perfect touch to my photo display wall art. You could use something like this in any room in the house. I’m using it in our master bedroom but it would look great in a craft room too.
