Anyway, I did share lots of summer "art" ideas a few days ago in hopes of inspiring you and I hope I did just that. But guess what? I inspired myself too and as a result I created this bright and cheery scrap wood art. BTW--I added some fill light to these photos, but I did NOT boost or change saturation--this piece is ACTAULLY THIS vibrant :).
I found the middle of the plywood and started witha green square there. I added wood pieces as I went--no real plan or pattern to follow. I used some that were already painted and some that weren't.
I attached them with a brad nailer or a nail gun. A reader asked what one was. I do not know the official name. It does not shoot large, regular sized nails, but thinner nails that might be considered brads. You use it with an air compressor. Remember to always wear safety goggles!!
This is what my art looked like after adding all of the pieces.
Next I painted the wood pieces.
I sanded and added a small "frame" that I also attached with the nail gun. I waxed it--HERE are some hints on waxing.
I used D rings on the back for hanging, but like it propped on shelf as well.
A perfect punch of color to brighten sunny, summer days.
