My entryway has been a hard thing to put together since moving last summer. I have tried to figure out what wall decoration ideas I loved most or wanted to try. The space is coming together and I decided on some art work. I had a 50% off coupon to Micheal’s and took advantage of the largest canvas for $19.99. I got the 36x 36 size and then I had to find inspiration. Originally I wanted to use a floral print, but then I bought a geometric shaped rug from Tjmaxx.
Then I discovered this blog post on an Beautiful Mess for DIY Abstract Art. I have a mixtures of styles in my home and I love mid-century inspired decor, but I have a gallery wall with nothing, but floral paintings. They are a mixture of traditional, do it yourself and just beautiful flowers. I am not big on portraits, but landscapes and flowers inspire me the most.
This simple painting project has high impact and adds a touch of refinement to any area. It doesn’t seem arts and crafts although it totally is just using everyday supplies. Its so simple that I can’t believe it only cost me about $25 bucks if you include the cost of paint and painters tape I already had on hand. I didn’t buy anything extra or unique to complete the project. Also the tip about applying white to seal the edges is genius.
- Acrylic Paint
- Painters Tape
- Paint Brushes
- Paper Plates or bowls
- Lay canvas on flat surface big enough for you to work.
- Take painters tape and form whatever pattern you like best. Make sure you tape all the way to edges.
- A pro-tip make sure you use the higher quality painters tape.
- Once you tape off area. Paint away. I typically like identify color sections before starting.
