Seriously Stunning Super-Sized String Art

String art is making a come back whether you like it or not. It's inexpensive and when done on a full wall instead of a small canvas it can add some serious design to a bland and boring room. Want to guess how many nails it took to create this corner masterpiece?

We checked in over with Holly at June Cleaver Nirvana who has to have sore fingers after she finished hammering in the nails for her new installation. Each side has 384 nails, which makes a grand total of 768. After that, string was wound back and forth (and back and forth) until each peg had been covered.

The end result is pretty darn awesome and could be done on large walls where you're unsure what to do. We all want large scale artwork, but the good news is string is actually affordable. It's a fun alternative that could be used as a placeholder until you find something different or a permanent piece to make your friends say, "Wow!"

Check out all the details of the process and how the installation went down over at June Cleaver Nirvana.
