There is list of all their amazing projects at the end of this post; grab a drink, take some time, and check them all out!

Family Room Gallery Wall with Blue and Gold Home Sweet Home Art - One Mile Home Style

I recently updated the look of our family room gallery wall, and this golden home sweet home art added the perfect little bit of rustic texture, and fun color.

Here are the materials you will need to create your own Golden Home Sweet Home wall art:
Blue Wood Stain (DIY tutorial coming soon!)
Small Paint Brushes

I have to preface this with the fact that this was my first ever woodburning project, and now I can't wait to do more! It was so fun, and so easy!

So, the first thing I did was create and print out my text on plain white paper. I played around with the fonts for a while before I found a combination I really liked. To create a traceable template on the wood, I rubbed chalk all over the back of the paper (in hindsight, colored chalk would have been a better choice), taped the paper chalk-side down to my woodslice, and then used the end of a paintbrush to trace over the letters. Carefully remove your paper to see your template.

Definitely start with a scrap piece of wood to practice your wood burning technique before you start on your project wood. I found that working backwords, from right to left, kept me from wiping the chalk off and worked better overall. The number one pointer I have is don't get caught up in making this look "perfect". There are going to be minor imperfections, and that's part of the beauty in this type of project.

Once I was happy with the lettering, I mixed up my own colored wood stain (tutorial to come), and applied it to the entire wood slice.

The wood really soaked up the stain, but I still gave it a few hours to fully dry. Then it was time to really make this wall art shine! Using my favorite color of Rub n' Buff, Antique Gold, and a small paintbrush, I filled in the letters of the word "sweet". This is what takes this little piece of art from simple to show-stopper!

Since I already had the Rub n' Buff out, and a little extra gold never hurt anyone, I added some golden touches to the bark edge too. It's just enough to be noticeable and fun, but isn't super blingy either.

The last thing to do was add a picture hook to the back, and hang my new golden home sweet home art on the gallery wall. It looks so pretty when the sun hits it in morning, and wood adds a warm rustic touch.
