Farmhouse Country Wall Art
I’ve been thinking about doing some type of Farmhouse Country Wall Art for my daughters new house but I had no idea what I was going to do to make this happen.
So when I went to the flea market I didn’t have anything in mind at all. But lucky for me I found these faucet handles and tiller blades for next to nothing. At the time, did I know what I would use them for? Absolutely not!
But a quick trip to Wal-Mart scored me a 16 x 20 rustic panel that looked like an old fence and some farming stencils-chickens, cows, pigs, eggs, sunflowers and a tractor! Perfect–
I picked up some little bottles of paint and off I went to create my project. I still didn’t know exactly what I was getting into but I had an idea.
- 5 old faucet handles
- 2 tiller blades or similar
- 1 16×20 wooden base
- Paint and brushes (I used acrylic paint that comes in small bottles for about $1.25 each)
- 11-12 wood screws long enough to hold the items securely but not go through the back of the wood
When I got home, I jumped in with both feet and started stenciling and painting.
At this point, I still didn’t know what I would do with the faucet handles, but I was getting closer.
I painted the scene I was going for using the stencils and then started playing around with the placement of the handles and blades.
Three faucet handles were painted white and placed on top of the painted “clouds”. I liked it. The 3 dimensional clouds looked nice.
Then, I decided to use the brown blade as the sun and after painting a little yellow in the center for some dimension, it was perfect.
For the back tire on the tractor, the green blade was perfect! The last two faucet handles fit just right inside the big tire and as the front tire of the tractor. (Because these parts were so heavy instead of using hot glue, I used wood screws to secure them all to the board)
And that was it-So easy after I got started. The hard part was figuring out what to do with the handles in the first place.
I’m so pleased – I hope my daughter likes it!
