Put a new color on your living room wall with this DIY wall art project. Painter's Touch 2X Ultra Cover spray paint in Gloss Modern Mint brings a touch of outdoor color inside. 

Small hexagon box: 8-3/4"W x 5-1/2"D. Each of the six sides is 5".
Large box: 12-1/4"W x 5-1/2"D. Each of the six sides is 7".
The backs of each box is notched out to receive the thin plywood back. 
The notch cuts are made on a table saw and do not go through the thickness of the board. 

Always work in a well-ventilated area and cover the floor with a drop cloth to protect it from overspray.

Using wood glue, construct the 3D hexagon shapes. Let the wood glue dry for about an hour.

Shake the spray paint in Modern Mint for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. Then, hold the can 8-12” away from the art and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion. Apply 2-3 light coats to the entire piece a few minutes apart. 

FINISH: Glue all hexagonal pieces together in a pattern that works on your wall. Let everything dry completely for 24 hours. 

TIP: Use of a primer provides added protection, superior adhesion and longer-lasting color. We recommend 2X Ultra Cover Primer in White.
