So do you happen to remember the peacock feathers that I ordered from One Kings Lane?
I asked for you to stay tuned, and my DIY feather project is finally complete.
And I have to say, I’m pretty darn happy with the final result, as it combines several things that are important to me: It is unique (one of a kind, in fact), I was able to do this project on a budget (will tally the total in a bit) and it is feathered.
So here’s how it all went down:
I bought “grass green” paint and posterboard from Michael’s.
And gave it several coats. There I also purchased gold frames that would fit an 11X14 picture (on clearance).
When the peacock feathers arrived I mounted them on the posterboard.
And then hung them as a series in my master. So now I get feathers, my strength symbol, next to my bed, which means a lot to me. And I did it on a budget. So here’s how it all breaks down:
Peacock Feathers from One Kings Lane: $22
Paint from Michael’s: $0.69
Posterboard from Michael’s: $1.99
3 Frames from Michael’s at $8.00 each
So the grand total of my original art piece is now $48.68. So for under Fifty Bucks I was able to create something very special, that pleases my eyes and my soul. Not bad, I say. Not bad at all.
