Dining Room Decor Part 2 {Wordle}

So Wordle seems to be all the rage these days! I happened upon this site a few months back and have had so much fun on it! You can create the coolest word art on it! And since then Ive noticed actually a lot of other bloggers who have posted on it. So Im not trying to beat a dead horse with this one. LOL But just wanted to share what I did with it! :)

I created my word art for my dining room. You can see part one here, where I created my Olive Garden Inspired wall art.

So first I created my wordle, using food and eating terms. And customized the colors to match my dining room. :) I saved the wordle I created.. so others could use it if they want.. you can get that  Here.


Then I printed it out on card stock paper. :)
I had an old black wood frame that I didnt use anymore, and decided it would be perfect to use again.. with a little work.
I used White acrylic paint and gave it 4 good coats.


After letting it dry about 5 minutes, I took it to the shop and borrowed some of my husbands sand paper. And just roughed it up a little. Giving it that shabby look, that Im really liking right now. :)
Then used clear acrylic sealer spray (gave it 2 coats of that).
 And hung it up... and thats it. Simple.. but I really love how it looks! Wordle is so fun!!
 Now to admire my lovely quick, easy and cheap work! LOL





I will most likely be linking up to these fab parties!! Check them out for loads of creative ideas!! :)
