My fine, feathered DIY.

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). photo (34)

When the peacock feathers arrived I mounted them on the posterboard. photo (54)

And matted and framed them. photo (55)

And then hung them as a series in my masterphoto 2_3 photo 3_3So 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.
