DIY-Wall Art - Switchboard

The savvy style of this project comes from screwless wall plates in black, white, and silver finishes. The clean and contemporary design coordinates well with a sleek home office.

Painted the same color as the wall, the plywood piece blends in and allows the wall plates to stand out.

Step 1:  Cut the plywood sheet to 20 x 24 inches.

Step 2: Sand the plywood piece, and wipe clean. Apply spray primer and paint to the piece, allowing each coat to dry.

Step 3: Place the wall plates at right angles on the plywood piece, alternating colors as shown here. Glue the plates to the plywood piece. Allow glue to dry completely.

Step 4: Hang the project using picture hangers and appropriate hardware for your wall type.
