Hi there, it's Promise. If you LOVE thrifting, vintage, art, and home decor, i think you will LOVE this DIY!! It's a super easy and fun way to make art for your home. I have a crush on repurposing everyday household items. Why wouldn't I??!! They are inexpensive, usable, and right in front of your eyes. I bet you won't even need to get into the car for this one. Here are the 5 simple steps.
All you need is paint, paint brushes (this is KEY. jk), and old vintage record albums.
2. DECIDE ON A COLOR SCHEME
For this particular project choose a color scheme beforehand, and then choose your record covers and paint accordingly.
3. CHOOSE PAINT COLORS
Take a look at each record album separately and decide which color paint would stand out best on each one. If you are unsure, pick a color that is not already on the album, that is a great start.
4. PAINT SIMPLE DESIGNS
Create bold, easy to paint designs. This will ensure that the designs you paint will show up. I chose to paint simple stripes (using tape), child-like flowers, a messy line drawing of a face, and large text letters. These drawings require no skill and are just really fun. I believe the messier the paint the better. Even if you are a terrible painter these will look cool because of the natural layering that will occur.
5. FRAME ARTWORK
The new artwork looks amazing next to each other. I Recommend framing them all together or putting them in separate frames and hanging them next to each other on the wall.
