Thanks a lot for your kind comments to my previous post, the tour of the bedrooms in my home.
As promised, here are the details about the arrow wall art in my son's room.
Let's start with the fact that this project was
totally inspired by a similar project this talented blogger HERE created for her little boy's room.
I collected random pieces of wood -mainly 1 x 4's- I had in the garage. Cut them at 45° and 12" length, but unlike my inspiration, I used the Kreg jig to put the pieces together.
If you don't own a Kreg jig, well, you should get one! That's how much I love it. It creates strong joints by drilling holes at an angle into one of your wood pieces, and then you join it to the second piece of wood with self-tapping screws.
If you don't have a Kreg Jig or don't want to buy one, go check how my inspiration HERE did it. She didn't use the jig.
I used three types of wood, one old board with a natural weathered look, other pieces that were stained, and also some remnants of the barn wood grey shiplap planks I used to cover my wheelbarrow here.
Three pieces were created, and since I didn't want to have much trouble hanging those three pieces on the wall...
I decided to attach some clear acrylic pieces to put together the whole thing. I cut the acrylic sheet with my BladeRunner saw, and did pre-drills before driving the screws.
This is how the the back of the entire thing looked after adding a pair of sawthooths.

It's an easy project done with pieces from the scrap pile and the room owner loves it. It doesn't get better than that. ;)
