DIY a Distressed Wall Art

I re-make the photo wall in this post. The photos that were printed on glossy paper faded from the sunlight it was getting every afternoon. The ones on textured matte paper remained pretty much the same. So it should be the cheapo glossy paper I bought !

I peeled  the photos off and  lined the canvases together. I kinda like the black border that was done in the first version. There’s uniformity and messiness together.

I decided to distress it  with coffee. Espresso, dark roast.

Then screw the canvases together. The wood is pretty soft and can be done by hand.

I printed out Thai numbers from 1 to 9 using  a cool Thai font  called ” Kai Kie ” ( Chicken Scratch ). Then carbon copied them onto the canvases.

Painted them with a dark brown acrylic color.

The end result looks like this :

I repeated the number 5 in the middle roll , since number 5 is pronounced ” HA!”.
