My steps included the same as ECC’s:
Wood Shim Wall Art Tutorial
I gathered my assortment of spray paints and threw in a wood stain that I had from another room. I purchased two sets of 12″ wood shims on Amazon. You can get these at any hardware store, of course, too. I went with less longer shims than the tutorial because of the size and shape of my wall. You can adjust your size and amount to your needs – another great perk of this project!
My gracious hubs offered to miter the shims at the 45 degree angle. Thank you! *NOTE: Some of them will chip, or split, but can possibly still be useable, plus that adds character.
Sprayed and stained:
*NOTE: Here is where I added a step to the ECC tutorial.
I wanted to be able to use these again somewhere else if I ever wanted a change. So, I had a slab of .5″ particle board cut to size at Lowe’s to mount on the back.
I found it was best for me to glue the shims to each other on top and bottom with wood glue, let dry, and then I used Gorilla Glue to mount the particle board on the back.
