Hi! I hope everyone had a super holiday!! I know we did! Today I am Guest Posting over at Peacoats & Plaid! Please hop on over there to check out my tutorial! <3
Lately I have been on a mission to fill our boring white walls so once my Silhouette Machine arrived I decided that in stead of going to the store and buying something over priced and generic I would make a piece that is custom to us and our life!
I asked Z to give me his favorite quote and I made this to hang in our teeny tiny bathroom to help give it some life:
This project was SUPER simple and cost less that $15.00 - win win right!?
Today I will show you how I did this project so that you can create of your own!
First I started with a 22"x28" canvas from the fabric store and painted it a linen color to give it a bit more dimension that just a
boring white canvas.
Then I spaced out how I wanted the words to fit on the space:
And transfered the quote using painters tape - it was cheaper than using the transfer paper. This part took a bit of time as the letters didn't want to immediately stick to the painted canvas. I just took my time removing the tape.
Then start painting over it!
I used the Martha Stewart craft paints - I mixed satin black with the silver because I am slightly obsessed with metallics right now.
I put on 2 coats total-
And once it was totally dry I peeled off the letters!
**If the paint seeps under the letters a little just use some of the white paint [or whatever color you use] and do a few touch ups** :)
It adds just a bit of fun to our bathroom and I could not be happier with the outcome!
Thank you so much for reading- I hope you enjoyed seeing it as much as I did working on it! Feel free to drop by and say hi or check out my Twitter & Pinterest too!!
