Canvases are such an inexpensive and easy way to add art to your home. I’ve shared lots of canvas art ideas here, including my polka dot canvas, 10 creative solutions for blank walls post, and my cameo silhouette post. So, when I needed a large piece of art to hang above the banquette in my kitchen, I knew a blank canvas was a good place to start.
I loosely followed this tutorial from The Clever Nest, she does a great job explaining the process so I don’t have to. 🙂 Basically, I used a foam brush and craft paint and, starting from the bottom, painted large X’s across my canvas. If I wasn’t happy with a particular section, I just waited until it was dry then painted over it. Love how forgiving craft paint is like that!
My 4-year-old and I decided it looked like the beach, which is just perfect if you ask me. And I love how it ties together all the colors in my kitchen.
With my 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby, this canvas cost about $8. Definitely a great investment, considering I can easily paint over it when I want a change.
Thanks for reading!
