I got these clipboards from the dollar store. They are simple, but I wanted them to be fabulous! So, I spray painted the hardware with gold paint, added a few inexpensive art prints and, violá, a beautiful, quirky art frame for your home!
I had this idea because I love art very much. Especially illustrations. You can check out my Pinterest board with art I love here! Sometimes, investing in art we love takes a toll on our wallet. Professionally framing it is always expensive and I wanted an option to display my art in a beautiful way that didn’t cost too much, and that I could easily change the print from time to time! Do you guys do that? I think I change the prints in our home according to the seasons!
So here is a step by step:
1. Protect the clipboard and expose only the hardware.
Certain stores will sell clipboards that come with a protective plastic that exposes only the hardware. Those are the easiest to work with! If you are working with a clipboard you already have at home, make sure you cover the clipboard with paper/plastic and prepare to spray paint the hardware only!
2. Selecting the right spray paint.
There are many options at the hardware store (my next choice might be fluorescent pink), I chose my favorite metallic spray paint: Rust-oleoum gold.
3. Close up of the final result:
4. Choose your favorite art print:
I constantly get prints from magazines or books that have images that speak to me. You don’t need to invest a lot to find prints that match your aesthetic or your home decor!
I hope you guys enjoy it!
Have a great week!
