I bought some 12x12 canvas packs at Big Lots before moving for the hubsters grad school.
I thought I would use them to modge podge decorative scrapbook paper on for a cute, cheap wall art.
While I was browsing paper selections at Micheals, I happened upon a cardstock lace pattern,
Similar to this one:
I immediately knew exactly what I was going to do!
I painted the canvases bright solid colors to match my pillows and curtains.
Then I took the cardstock paper and placed it on top of one of the canvases
I used it as a stencil and painted black paint over it
(at first I tried spray painting the black, but then found I got cleaner lines if I just used a stencil brush and did it by hand)
It was exactly what I had envisioned!
I painted 5 canvases
5 different colors
with the same stencil
then hung them above my TV.
Here's an up close of one:
And the whole group:
I think they go well with my green TV stand! :)
|(Yes, that is a picture of my family on the TV screen, I didn't put it there on purpose, it's the home screen on my husband's PS3 that he had on)|
This is the way I bring color into my rented, white walls house!
Being in this room makes me happy!
Do you need to add some color to your home?
