I know I’ve mentioned that I love a lot of the designs, art and furniture from Pottery Barn, but you know I don’t always love the price. So when I saw this really pretty Yellow Diamond Panel from Pottery Barn (retails for $199), I knew that I could easily recreate it with the help the new Chalky line of paints from Americana! This piece took a little bit of patience to create, but mostly due to dry time. This knock-off was not difficult at all and so I am excited to how you how I re-created this Pottery Barn Knock-Off Diamond Art!
Isn’t that just so much fun! It is a bit modern and a bit rustic. I think the triangle shapes are so much fun and unexpected and the cream and yellow color is just perfect for my home! You can of course customize this to match the colors in your home too!
So in case you are wondering, here is the the original one from Pottery Barn:
And here is my version:
Pretty amazing huh!? Here is what I did…
Pottery Barn Knock-Off Diamond Art
To Create this, You Will Need:
- Americana Chalky Paint, Lace (or other)
- Americana Chalky Paint, Delicate (or other)
- Americana Chalky Paint, Heritage (or other)
- Stain, Minwax Dark Walnut (or similar)
- Foam Brush
- Foam Roller Brush (optional)
- Painters Tape
- 24″ x 24″ x 1/2″ plywood
- (2) 6′ long 1″ x 2″ boards
- Wood Glue
- Brad Nail Gun (optional)
- Picture Hanger
Before I began, I gave my plywood a quick sanding to remove any rough edges. Then I used a foam roller and my off-white chalky paint to give my entire board a white base. Then I let it dry completely. Thankfully, chalk paint dries really quickly so the board went together quickly.
Then I took my painters tape and began taping off my board. Because the triangles all touch, I had to tape off just one or two triangles at a time to paint.
I mixed about 50% Delicate (light yellow) and 50% Heritage (dark yellow) paint to create the perfect yellow for this project. Then I used my foam brush to give each triangle two coats of my mixed yellow paint.
Check out my pictures below to see how I taped and painted my board.
Can I tell you how much I LOVE this Chalky paint!? It paints and covers so nicely and leaves such a pretty finish. It is also really easy to sand and distress which makes it the perfect kind of paint for a project like this.
After my board was dry I cut my 1″ x 2″ boards to fit around my final board like a frame. Then I sanded and stained the frame pieces and then I distressed my triangle board using sandpaper.
I attached my frame to the sides of my plywood using our brad nail gun and some wood glue. But if you don’t have a brad nailer, don’t worry, you can use just wood glue instead! Just be sure to secure the boards together with clamps or painters tape to clamp it all together while it dries.
Then attach a hanger to the back of your board and enjoy!
I love how our new artwork looks in our home! It took less then half a day to DIY (including all dry time) and only cost me about $20! Seriously! Who would pay $199 when you can DIY it for $20! (Note: I had many of my supplies on hand already for this project. If you don’t have any of them, it will cost a bit more then that to re-create yourself. 🙂
