Giant Wall Art, Almost Free




Introduction: Giant Wall Art, Almost Free

Step 1: Step 1

Needed a huge piece of artwork for my bedroom wall, but even fake artwork this size is way too expensive.
Things needed:
-1x2 wood for frame
-shower curtain with your choice of artwork
-Old dark coloured sheet
-staple gun and staples

Step 1 is to make a frame slightly smaller than your shower curtain.
I put my frame together with 1x2s I had in the garage and put in the extra support at the corners so it would stay square

Step 2: Step 2

Since the shower curtain is slightly transparent under certain light, I stapled a dark sheet to the wood frame first so that the frame won't be seen through the final artwork.

Step 3: Step 3

Step 3 is to staple the shower curtain to the frame making sure to line up the pattern properly and stretch it uniformly across the frame. Then hang on the wall. That's it, done.
The only cost in this project was the shower curtain, which I think was $12 from amazon. The wood and dark sheet were free since I already had them.

    Agreed. That is really clever. There are some really nice shower curtains out there these days!
