Umbra Wallflower Wall Decor, Take 2

Painted Umbra Wall Flowers from the front

Awhile back I posted a photo of my spray painted yellow/orange Umbra Wall flower Wall decor on my refrigerator. I took a spare set of the lime green plastic flowers, sanded them a bit, then put several coats of off-white latex wall paint on them. With some metal tacks, they stick to the wall and their matching color makes them rather subtle and unassuming.

Or, unassuming when accompanied by a wall full of the craziness that is my living room. So long as they don't move around much, or fall, the paint won't chip. (The chipping is more a problem with the refrigerator flowers, as they tend to get knocked off frequently).

Nice wall!

Thanks! It's more out of necessity than design. Without the busy-wall I'd have nowhere to stick random presents and creations.

Oh wow, your print looks great, so does your whole wall. Thanks for sharing :)
