(hibachi restaurant art: inspiration)After enjoying our food, we decided to head over to Lowes and see about replicating this. We decided the easiest way to recreate this for our home was to get some plexiglass, fun paper patterns and spacers. We ended up getting 2 huge sheets of plexiglass and had Lowes cut the glass for free at varying lengths. We had a total of 5 different lengths cut, and cut 2 of each length. We then bought some spacers and long screws to help with mounting the pieces and allow varying depths.
Once we had the materials purchased (for less than $20 I might add!), we then began building it, which was surprisingly easy. After laying out the paper patterns we wanted to use, we just sandwiched those between 2 matching sizes of plexiglass. We then drilled a hole in the plexiglass and slowly mounted to the wall. When mounting, we used the spacers to help create depth. The first piece we placed on the wall was screwed directly into the wall. The next piece used a small spacer to make it stand out more. We then started overlapping the pieces and created different depths with the spacers.
(plexiglass and paper laid out)The good thing about this artwork is when we get bored with the paper patterns we selected, we can easily change it out! I did have to overlap some of my paper because the piece were shorter than the plexiglass, so I would recommend either getting larger paper or smaller plexiglass because at certain angles you can see the seam. Other than that, it was a simple, inexpensive and fun project! Definitely great for filling some blank wall space in the house!
