DIY: Canvas Wall Art

23 Apr


Since I moved into my apartment I’ve had three frames hanging above my bed of some artwork I created in college. On a recent visit to New York my mother suggested (in the way mothers often do) that a single piece of art would look better. Her suggestion wasn’t appreciated in the moment, but after some serious contemplation I have to admit that she was right. They always are, aren’t they? Instead of paying for an expensive piece of artwork I bought a large white canvas, some circular color coding labels and spray paint. This was the result.


Since gold polka dots have become sort of my signature look, this project is perfect for me. I went with two different size circles- a 3/4″ and  1″. I came up with a design and applied my spray paint. Once dry, peel off your stickers and enjoy the final product. Artwork that brings my entire bedroom together for under $50 is okay in my book.
