The design I chose was from a pillow (see image below). I used a projector to trace the design onto the MDF boards. After I traced the design, the hubsters cut it out with a jigsaw. I told him I would help, but I think he was afraid I’d screw it up. So, he spent 5 1/2 hours cutting out the design for me. After that, I primed and painted them and then upholstered the back with black felt.
Although the project was time consuming, it is a very simple project that anyone can do if they have the patience and tools needed.
The concept turned out exactly how I wanted it to, but just think about the possibilities. You could do ANY design that you wanted! The projector makes it super easy to trace on whichever design you choose, so you don’t have to worry about being “artistically” talented.
Sometimes a huge wall in a room can be a challenge, but a project like this is perfect and CHEAP to take up the entire wall.
