Dear Diary readers,
Hey there! Today I share a quick tutorial to revamp a canvas. It’s so easy to get inexpensive art these days; every store has them and I agree, some are really cheap and nasty, others not so much but lack a little zing. This little canvas is one of such not so shabby ones, but needs a bit more.
I am currently working on revamping a guest bedroom on a small budget and this is one trick to get a polished look without spending thousands for wall art. Enter the wall canvas….
A quick DIY frame with supplies from your local hardware store. I used this pre-primed pine strips that’s a teensy bit wider than the wall canvas, just to have a little more dimension once added. Notice the rounded edge. You can use a square edge if you wanted, it will look just as great. (oh, and please excuse the phone pics….I was lazy to get the big camera 😉 )
Cut them to size using a fine tooth saw (I used a metal saw) and a little mitre box.
3 simple steps to revamp a wall canvas…
*glue them onto wall canvas with your hot glue gun…
*fill any gaps with paintable gap filler
*Paint it gold and …..done….booyah baby!
Isn’t that much better? It feels so much more polished and stylish. This wall canvas has now gone up a level people. 🙂
Yes…..much better! Now the gold frame will also add rhythm to the other gold elements I am using in the room.
This wall canvas has much more zing don’t you agree friends? A fun and easy revamp of a wall canvas anyone can do!
I will share this room as soon as I am done. Hoping your week is a creatively busy one!
