First we had vinyl records, then 8-tracks, then cassette tapes, and then came CD’s. Not long ago, we thought CD’s were the most advanced music format. Little did we know, just a few years later, CD’s would be but obsolete too. Now we have to face the fact that digital music is here to stay!
Unfortunately, what that leaves us with is a huge stack of CD’s that don’t really have any use anymore. So, what do you do with them? We have the perfect solution.
This nifty DIY project only requires a few supplies and can be done relatively quickly and easily. The result is an awesome and unique piece of wall art.
All you need is a CD, a paintbrush, pencil, black acrylic paint, and a screwdriver.
Start by covering the non-label side of the CD with a coat of black acrylic paint. Wait a few minutes for it to fully dry.
Next, take the pencil and draw out your design. You can follow the example below or draw a pattern of your own.
The pencil marks are just for tracing, so feel free to erase and get creative.
Once the design is set, take the screwdriver and scratch the paint off all the pencil lines.
The final result is the shiny part of the CD is illuminated through the black paint creating an awesome effect.
It looks great when hung up on a wall. Create a few more designs to make the pieces really pop.
There are infinite design possibilities and the CDs are very easy to hang up. Just put a piece of painter’s tape on the backside of it and stick it to the wall.
