We used to have a big blank wall in our dining room. A big blank wall that we stare at every day. And of course, I didn’t want to spend a bunch of money on artwork for that wall. It was a problem.
Until one day I had an idea for how to create a DIY large wall art piece that would really fill that big blank space and make a statement. I wanted an art piece with texture and interest, but still modern and simple. And I wanted it to have meaning, too.
Then I ordered some vinyl letters. I got mine courtesy of BuildaSign.com. The website is not super user-friendly but I really liked that I could totally customize the size of the letters and choose from a good selection of fonts. The decals were shipped quickly and looked great when they arrived. They were easy to apply and are still hanging on strong on my sign (even though I’m writing this post almost 5 months after I actually did the project). The total price of the letters was $25.32. If you have an awesome fancy cutting machine, you could probably DIY this part, too.
My new DIY large wall art perfectly fills the space above our coffee station. You can see my much beloved Nespresso machine and milk frother on the left. I make better lattes at home than I’ve ever had at Starbucks, now.
For other wall art ideas, check out my project painting canvas quote art, cork photo display, and fingerpainted canvas art. Or you can just keep oogling the awesome DIY statement art piece above my coffee bar. Which is what I’ll be doing.
This is such a cute idea! I love the way it looks over your coffee bar.

Very mod and definitely an eye catcher! Love! I think the birch plywood gives a wonderful nod to the vintage look already going on in that area. Perfectly done!

Oh, wow- what a STATEMENT! I LOVE this. And I had NO idea there existed a website that you could enter your own phrase and order prints- sheer genius. Thanks for sharing- and the inspiration! I really do love this! 🙂
