I started with this mismatched jumble of frames, which I painted all black. Then I had pieces of 1/8-inch-thick birch plywood cut to fit each frame. With help from a design-savvy artist friend, I was then able to create the outline for my project.
See what I created when you
The final result was this wall-size decoupaged horse! Thanks to a ton of help from friends and family at my baby shower, we were able to fill in the outline in only a few hours (and many bottles of Mod Podge later). I also used Mod Podge to create a lacquer for the entire project, and the absolute most difficult part of the entire project was hanging it.
Intrigued? Check back tomorrow when I take you through all of the steps.
