DIY Tape and Canvas Project - Free for Me!



I say free for me because I had all the items needed for this project stuffed in closets around the house laying around the house. Chris sometimes calls me a hoarder, but now he is realizing that I hoard save things for a reason. Not to mention his addiction to saving the boxes that items come in! Sorry Honey, I just had to get it out there that we both hoard stuff in our own little ways :)

Last weekend I was on a DIY spree (click here, here, here, and here). The weather was sooo perfect that I couldn't help myself but be outside in the garage. I had seen on this blog a painter's tape and canvas project that caught my eye. Then it hit me like a paint brush to the face: I've got all the materials to complete this project sitting in my house! And then I did the happy dance, and Chris looked at me like I was crazy. He loves my craziness.




Wrigley's always got my back, while Princess Bailey lays by the door begging to go back inside.

The paint colors seen on the canvas were all sample colors we had got while deciding on wall colors for our house. As you can see, we were not very consistent with our design choices, but we are thrilled with the colors we did pick! If you have any questions about the names of the colors on the canvas just leave me a comment :)

So, for zero dollars we now have more wall art. Woo hoo! Chris actually loves this piece. He is always skeptical at first, then BAM, I shock him. I like to keep him on his toes. Not sure where this beaut is going to hang out, but I'll let y'all know when she finds her spot!
