So when my roommate moved out she left six or so blue metal panels in the basement. I kept them because I figured I could do something crafty with them, and if I never did then an easy trip to the Goodwill would dispose of them. Flipping through a catalog, most likely Pier 1 or Pottery Barn I found a cool art print of a bike stencil that spanned to large square panels. Inspiration hit and I knew I could stencil something large on two or three of these panels to create some sort of art. My current house has lots of empty wall space so I knew I could find a spot for them. I have a slight obsession with seagulls so I found a cool seagull stencil, taped an outline on the panels and started painting away. It only took an afternoon and I had a brand new piece of art. We decided to hang it about the bed as a mock headboard.
(please ignore dead husband in the picture I was planning on disposing of the body later today)
