DIY Geometric Wood Art

I was looking for a budget friendly outdoor art piece to hang above my DIY console table. Here is the problem with a lot of outdoor art. Most of the outdoor art looks like it came from a junk yard or has some kitschy beer saying on it. That just wasn’t really the vibe I was going for on our patio.

So, I decided I was going to create my own art. And I found an art piece I could DIY that would cost me $0. That is a number I can get behind! By using materials I already had in my garage, I created a geometric wood art sign that matches perfectly with home.

Here was the inspiration I was going for:

How To DIY Geometric Wood Art:


Plywood cut to size

Blue Painters Tape

Paint (colors of your choice - I used Alabaster, Anchors Aweigh, and Urbane Bronze by Sherwin Williams)

Stain (color of your choice - I used Varathane Golden Oak)

1in x 2in Wood cut to the size of your plywood piece

Brad Nailer

18 Gauge Nails

Wood Glue

Polyurethane Spray (Indoor Art)

Spar Urethane Spray (Outdoor Art)


1. Cut your plywood to size. If you have a table saw at home, you can cut the plywood using the table saw. If not, Home Depot will cut wood for you.

2. Cut the 1x2 boards to frame the size the plywood. Sand using sandpaper or an orbital sander if you have one.
