DIY: Makeover by Kathleen Heady

I found this while thrifty shopping priced at $4.99. This was a real simple project and easy do-it-yourself project makeover that can be done on any similar piece of Wall Art.

Before Photo


Here is the material list below. It’s real simple to do this.


Primer Paint

Black Paint

Newspaper i.e Painters Floor Cover or Shower Curtain


Directions: Use newspaper or lay down a painters cover or shower curtain in the floor space where you plan to paint. The painters cover or shower curtain can be found for $1 at your local dollar store.

Clean piece with wet cloth. Let dry. Then set onto cover. Spray with prime paint two times allowing 15-20 minutes to dry between each coat.

Then apply 2-3 coats of black spray paint. Let each coat of applied black spray paint to dry for 15-20 minutes before applying the next coat. Then let piece dry for an hour or overnight (optional).

Add twine to back of Wall Art if needed to hang piece to hang piece to wall.


Have fun.

    I love how this came out. I wouldn’t have guessed black, but that looks perfect.

      Thank you! I was actually not thinking of painting it black either! I was originally thinking a turquoise then decided black would look good too and went with it! 🙂

    When I first saw the original picture I was yuck…what can she possibly do with that? I also had a headache and was not thinking. It is beautiful. I am amazed. You are right up my alley in taking old items and giving new life. That is my favorite hobby. I was thinking a lighting fixture when I first saw it. Must have been the headache lol…
