Make it! wall art dis­play

Style at Home (UK) - - Victorian Terrace -

1 Cre­ate the frame of your dis­play unit by join­ing to­gether a se­ries of shal­low storage boxes (try the ply­wood range in a va­ri­ety of shapes from Hob­by­craft) us­ing strong glue, or use a wooden cut­lery or drawer or­gan­iser. 2 Paint each sec­tion of your joined boxes in dif­fer­ent shades. For a rus­tic ef­fect, use a dry brush to layer colours on top of each other. Leave to dry. 3 Gather to­gether the col­lecta­bles you’d like to dis­play. Lucci and Gary chose per­sonal items such as toy cars, old tools, rope and par­lour games like darts, domi­noes and play­ing cards. Place the frame in front of you and ar­range your items, se­cur­ing them if needs be.
