When the husband wants something, he just has to say the word and then I’ll take care of the rest. This time he wanted an armchair, for more comfort.
I wasn’t exactly sure where else I could put this extra armchair seeing that our living room isn’t a big room, so I had to compromise some things and move around. The photo below was the old living room decor nook, where the floor lamp is. And this is where the new armchair will go.
So when we put the new armchair there and moved the floor lamp to the opposite nook (gotten rid of the magazine rack), the walls behind the armchair looked rather plain. I decided to DIY some art from the stuff we already had and picked up a couple of things from the junk yard. I got this timber tray for $2.50 each.

The picture below are the 3 DIY wall art.
1- Exsiting Ikea MALMA mirror that I stencil and painted with a quatrefoil design.
2. Junk yard timber tray turned wall art – digital design print.
3. Junk yard timber tray turned wall art – hand painted.
For the quatrefoil mirror, I cut out a stencil and traced it all around the mirror with a pencil.
Then using acrylic paint, painted it with love and care.
Here is a close up of the timber trays, they are painted to make it look a bit rustic
As for art #2, Its a digital design art that I made in illustator and printed it out. I’m also selling it in my Etsy store.
The cushion was purchased online from eBay.
