Scrap Wood Never Looked so Pretty

8 Materials
1 Hour

I have been looking for a large scale art to put up on a wall in my office space. I wanted it to not just look pretty but also have a significance. Like most things, inspiration struck me when I least expected it!
Here is a video tutorial showing you exactly how I made this art work!
I had cut up a few boards at an angle for a project and when I saw the little triangle scraps, I got this fun idea! I stained a 1/2" plywood boards and traced triangles on it.
I went with "everything falls in place pattern"
I randomly painted the triangles I had traced in the color scheme of my office - aqua, coral and yellow. To add a bit of glam, I also used mirror tape and cut up triangles.
I also painted a few scrap triangles in the colors or covered them in the mirror tape.
I glued the triangle scraps to the plywood randomly to give the entire art work a three dimensional effect.
The triangles look like they are all falling in place!
I also added a frame using 1x2 boards and hung it up on my office wall.
It looks absolutely gorgeous and motivates me! Also, it looks really pretty with all the colors and the glam! .
