If you havent heard of Pinterest, get out from under the rock you are residing! Follow my boards---even though my pins are farther and fewer these days because I'm actually making them come to life!
I pinned this idea a while back and knew FOR SURE I wanted it in the entry way. We have that crazy long wall that is currently just housing temporary object because I have a OCFOEWS (Obsessive Compulsive Fear of Empty Walls Syndrome) self diagnosed of course--and thought this would be the perfect addition to that wall.
Truly one of my very first pins, I loved the look of this and was waiting for my butt to kick itself into gear to do it. I enjoy wood projects (have you seen my man room or entry way hall?!) but I needed a break from wood. So I went to my next bff---canvas.
I picked up the 2 packs of canvas from Hob Lob on Friday, and snatched up a (drumroll....) $5.99 rubber mat from my other home (Ross). and decided to wing it.
Oil Rubbed Bronze Krylon Paint and some Ivory Krylon Paint and a doormat similar to below
helped turn some drab canvases,
to some fab canvases.
and then I changed my mind on where I wanted them....are you surprised much?
And just because I'm that CHEAP....You better believe I was going to find a purpose for the now Ivory mat.....
What a great addition that made to my powder room!
Still cant decide what I want to do in there, but it's taking on a bird theme---left over wedding centerpieces (spray painted, of course!) HOLLA! This girl dont let nothin' go to waste!
So there ya have it. Multi-functional DIY wall art.
Now where else can I find a cool idea like this?
P.S. Have you noticed my blogging counterpart completely MIA lately? Yea me too. I tried to tell him, his fan base is dwindling.
