So, this is what the shelf above the TV stand looked like before I set forth on my artwork quest.
|Those are wedding pictures.|
And then those pictures ended up above my kitchen cabinets. (The wall color is now different.)
So, I needed something different. I wanted some art to pull together the color of my couches. I like stripes, so I went with that. Oh, and NO, I did not find any inspiration on Pinterest. This project came completely from my brain, and I feel pretty great about that.
I bought some blue acrylic paint (30% off $1.99 at Michaels)...
Some black acrylic paint ($3.99 at Michaels) and a wooden letter ($3.99 at Michaels)...
Note: the letter was originally white, but I painted it black so that there'd be more contrast between the letter and the stripes.
Using painter's tape, which you can see in the above picture, I used the same method I used on my bathroom walls. I bought this canvas at Michaels, too. My entire purchase was 20% off because I had a coupon. Woot woot.
Using E-6000 (really potent adhesive at Michaels), I affixed the W to the canvas.
I waited a few hours for it to dry.
I rearranged some stuff, and this is where it stands now. (Not sure how I feel about the "floating" candle on the left, but I'm too pooped to mess with it anymore.)
And here you can see the W and Snow White kicking ass.
