DIY Easy Canvas Art

Hello bloggers!  It has been a while since I put up a post and am SO excited to share with you my most recent project!  Remember when I posted about the bare wall in my girl cave?  The plan for that wall is a sleeper sofa and some simple DIY artwork above the sofa that would be inexpensive.  This project caught my eye and I knew I had to try it out!
  • Canvases (I purchased 3 12x24 stretched canvases from Joann Fabrics)
  • White Spray Paint
  • Painter's Tape
  • Another color of Spray Paint of your choice
  1. Spray the canvas with white spray paint
  2. Let the paint dry
  3. Place painter's tape onto the canvas in a pattern or randomly (be sure to extend the strips onto the edges so the pattern continues!)
  4. Spray the canvas with two coats of the second paint color (I used the gray though in the final picture it looks dark blue/purple)
  5. Let the paint dry
  6. Peel off the painter's tape and voila, you're done!
Oh, I am so excited to hang these babies!  Once we get the sleeper sofa then we can center the canvases above the furniture.

Seriously, this project was so easy and I did it within maybe two hours?  And most of the time was spent in waiting for the paint to dry!  Did I mention that these canvases are super light?  You could hang them in a dorm room using Velcro strips or mounting tape instead of putting a bunch of holes in the wall.

Update:  Here are the canvases in the girl cave!
