Whether you’re planning on decorating for the upcoming presidential election or just a fan of vintage decor, this Americana DIY shelf decoration is easy to paint and assemble. If the stars and stripes aren’t your thing, you can always customize the paint and chains with a ton of other options available at ConsumerCrafts.
- Pallet Wood Art Canvas Box
- Triangle Picture Hangers
- Bronze Colored Cable Chain
- Chalky Finish Paint
- Star Stencil Template
- Jewelry Pliers
- Brown Stain (or watered down brown paint)
Step Three. Brush blue chalk paint onto the sides of the pallet box. Try to keep from painting the top bars but don’t worry too much if accidents happen. You can either paint over the small spots or just chalk it up to the handmade nature of Americana decor!
Step Seven. If you want to give this DIY shelf decoration an even more “vintage-y” feel, apply a light coat of stain and quickly remove excess with a cloth. This step is totally optional but I love how the stain gives the colors a subtle antique look.
Don’t like the chain? You could always go with Twisted Satin Cording or any other fashion cord. You could even change the size of the shelf by using one of the other Pallet Art Canvases available. Of course, the easiest way to customize this DIY Americana shelf decoration would be to paint it with different designs, or just leave it natural. There are tons of ways to make this shelf your own!
Think about creating this DIY Americana decor wall hanging to display with your new hanging shelf decoration.
