Cinema Wall Art

Happy Monday Everyone 

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  I had a great weekend.   My mother in-law was up visiting for the past 3 days, so my kids were able to get in all their Grandma time. They were all so thrilled that Grandma got to take them to school on Friday and watch so of their school activities.  Plus we were happy that she could get away from the stresses she has been dealing with.

While she was here my husband and her took the kids swimming which gave me the opportunity to get a project checked off my to do list. 



I love subway art and it is so easy to do.  I had a scrap board in my garage already that was perfect for this project. I painted it black for base coat.


I figured out what words I wanted and used my vinyl cutting program to come up with a layout. Once that was done I cut out a large vinyl piece to fit the board.



Painting the stencil was my next step, I started by painting it white but didn't feel like it was the right color choice soI ended up repainting it with a silver.



After the paint was dry I removed the vinyl and gave it a sanding throughout and on the edges.


I love the look of the book page and the clipart so I found some printable images online of both and used my photoshop program to create this picture and simply printed it on my printer.




The movie reels I was able to find on Etsy, they work perfectly on this wall.

Also I have a question for you all, I am having a hard time deciding on what to put on the top shelves of my tv unit.  Any suggestions would be great.

I love this soooo much! what a great wall decoration, it suits the room so well. I love the movie reels so much, what if you turned one or two of the reels (guess you might have to order more) into some kind of picture frame for your top shelf??

It could work...and you would be just the lady to pull it off!

Love it. Some type of greenery would look good on top of your tv unit (I love plants). Found you on Junkintheirtrunk's linky party. Thanks for sharing. I really love those movie reels.

This looks great! I love the way your subway art turned out:) For your 2 shelves, maybe you could find some vintage movie pictures you could frame and put up there.

I am not the best at decorating my house, so I am sure whatever you do will look great! Take care-
