Simple DIY Peacock Decor

4 Materials
30 Minutes

While I’m giving a face lift to my office/craft room, I’ve been looking for ways to include budget friendly decor pieces. Using a couple of old frames and some peacock feathers, I created two pieces of wall art that will go well with the theme of the room. This Simple DIY Peacock Decor was quick and easy to put together.
I removed the glass from the frames because I want these to be open frames. I used Waverly Chalk Paint in Peacock.  I brushed it on one side of the frame at a time.
To get the look I wanted, I used a lint free cloth to wipe away some of  the paint, allowing some of the gold to show through. 
After I finished painting and wiping away paint, I liked the look of the frames.
To add a little sparkle to the frames, I cut a sheet of card stock to size and used it as backing for each frame. 
The finishing touch was to add a couple of peacock feathers to each frame. I positioned them the way I wanted and then lifted them up to add a small line of hot glue to hold them in place. 
Using old frames for new decor pieces is a simple way to coordinate the look of any room. Instead of peacock feathers, any item that reflects the overall decor of a room could be used in the frames.
