She Painted All Her Old CDs Black, And When You See The Reason You’ll Want To Try It Too.


It’s not easy to remember that the compact disc was once a cutting-edge piece of technology. Since its introduction to the world in 1982, the CD has seen its usage rise and fall. These days, many people have boxes overflowing with the plastic hunks of junk, and not much to do with them.

But like most old useless stuff, there is actually a really cool way to upcycle your CDs. With just a few steps, you can turn your copy of Spiceworld into something really awesome.

For this project, you’re going to need a few CDs, acrylic paint, a pencil, a paintbrush, and a screwdriver.


First, paint the CD with the acrylic.

Once the paint dries, use the pencil to draw a design.


This is your chance to be as creative as possible!

If you make a mistake, don’t fret! You’re not going to see the pencil lines when you’re done.

Once your design is in place, use the screwdriver to etch the paint off along your pencil lines.


When you’re finished, you should have something that looks like this!

You can make them in any design you want!

Next comes the fun part: putting them on the wall!


The best way to place your new work of art on the wall is with some good ol’ fashion blue painter’s tape.


Just create a few tape “loops” on the back part of your CD, place it where you want, and you’re good to go!

It’s crazy to think how many CDs I used to have, and now they’re just sitting in a case, unused and unloved. It’s time to dig them out and make myself some awesome wall art!
