With the success of the decoration or the furniture using pallets of recovery, we propose you to realize a personalized work of art stencil who will make you one or one Andy Warhol with your loved ones.
This is a fairly simple achievement, but a strong aesthetic impact, which will accommodate several decorative styles, ranging from a rustic to industrial, even minimalist or decidedly contemporary. In short, it is a decorative and unique must, you can hang with pride wherever you want, no need to handle the pencil like a pro for an amazing effect.

The only danger when your friends see it is that they may order you. All you need for this artistic DIY, in addition to some recovered boards, either on a pallet, an old floor or a piece of furniture, it's a photo. The idea is to reproduce the contours of the silhouettes of a photo that you like, and in which the shapes of the extras are quite precise and detached from the background of the image. You can enlarge a photo of your computer, print it, and cut out the outlines as you want them to appear. If you have a strong piece of nylon, copy these outlines on the nylon. You get a stencil. Keep it for later, you will need it.

Now, get some boards, the more the wood will look old, the better. Assemble together these boards, which can be of the same lengths or lengths slightly different for an industrial effect, with two other boards that you nail or screw in the back. The idea is to have a relatively flat surface that will be your backdrop. Then, apply the stencil on your frame, and fill the void with the color you like, with a brush or a spray of paint. The silhouette will appear so, you just hang on the wall. Congratulations! Now you can try other models ...
