My kitchen makeover is getting so close to being done!
Yesterday on Facebook is shared a snippet of my new backsplash, and today I wanted to share my Butcher Diagram kitchen wall decor with a Free Silhouette cut file.
I’ve always admired butcher prints, maybe because I grew up on a hog farm. I’ve seen some lots of different ones on etsy, in restaurants, and at the meat market but I wanted to create something original.
When I found a roll of vintage tea towel fabric I knew I had to incorporate it into my kitchen makeover. Then I came across this poster frame at Value Village (for only $2.99!) and my kitchen art vision quickly came together!
A few months ago I professed my love for fabric paint when I shared a tutorial for ‘How To Use Fabric Paint‘. I had a lot of extra paint leftover from my Fabric Ink starter kit from Silhouette, and I couldn’t wait to make another project! Follow the easy fabric paint tutorial to create your own fabric printed butcher diagram.
You can see I had a little bit of bleeding under the stencil material because the tea towel fabric is textured. I actually like that it is a tad uneven, it lends itself to a more vintage look.
Tea towel meet the meat market!
I painted the Value Village frame a soft beige to co-ordinate with the rest of the kitchen decor.
The poster frame had a sheet of plexiglass in it, but I thought having it mounted with no glass would make it look much more natural.
I sprayed the backing cardboard with spray adhesive and pressed the tea towel onto the backing. It was perfect because the adhesive is reposition-able… getting those red lines matched up with the edge of the frame was a bit of a task!
I really love how this butcher diagram wall art turned out. It will accent the rest of my modern farmhouse kitchen decor perfect. I can’t wait to show you the rest of my kitchen makeover!
