DIY Inspirational Wall Art
I am in the midst of organizing and giving my office a minor facelift this week. I have a love/hate relationship with this room though. I use it to blog, take my photos and do homework, so it needs to be somewhere that I want to be. I love it because two walls are covered in windows, so it is nice and bright. But, one wall is my desk wall which is covered by my desk and wall unit. The last wall has a glass double door, so there is not a whole lot of wall space to hang photos of things that I love. So, since the space is limited, I wanted to do something that was inspirational to me. So, I decided to make some DIY Inspirational Wall Art.
I was super happy when I received a Silhouette Portrait for Mother’s Day, and I couldn’t wait to put it to work! You can totally do this project without one though, so do not get discouraged! Instead of cutting out your inspirational phrase, you can easily use letter stickers to do the trick!
Blank framed canvas
Brightly colored paint of choice
Inspirational Phrase printed on vinyl, or alphabet stickers.
Once I printed off my phrase, I placed it over the canvas to get an idea of there I wanted it. Since I wanted the word “Crazy” to be a different color, I marked the area where it would be placed for painting.
Once That was done, I got to painting. I painted the canvas in my favorite blue, and the area I marked off, I swirled with a bright green. Allow this paint to dry for 2-3 hours.
Once paint has dried completely, I add my vinyl cutout of my quote. Make sure that it is stuck on there good so paint does not bleed under it.
Apply a good coat of black paint over everything. I started by painting over the letters first, then moved on to coat the entire canvas. Depending on the type of paint, it may require two coats. Allow paint to dry again for 2-3 hours.
Once the final coat is completely dry, carefully remove the vinyl (or stickers) from the canvas. Then simply display in an area that you need the most inspiration.
