Upcycled Office Wall Art-DIY

Recently there have been some work office/workstation changes at my day job and I was lucky enough to get an office of my own.  I wanted to make it more “homey” since I spend a tremendous amount of my life at “work”.

For some office inexpensive wall art, I decided to go with a coastal/nautical theme AND  my goal was to decorate on a budget and make or upcycle most of what goes into my office.

I found these vegetable pictures at a thrift store marked from $10.00 down to $4.0o then 1/2 price – my cost was $2.00. I liked the frames as soon as I saw them.  I taped off the frames and painted over the pictures with “Acrylique” paint called warm white.

I kind of forgot to take a picture of them painted 😦 (before the vinyl) oops.

Next I headed to my Cricut and cut out some simple coastal/nautical shapes. I had some leftover blue vinyl from my Ciad Mile Failte sign. Love it when I can use what I already have.

I decided on an octopus, a sailboat, an anchor and a starfish. 

I have just recently hung them up in my office – I will show you them in another post along with my other office decor items.

You can find all the images I used in Cricut Design Space. The best part is that the vinyl is removable so if I change my theme I can easily reuse the frames.
