DIY Guest Room Art

So I tried the quote art thing a couple of weeks ago, and it was an official "DIY Defeat" situation.  HOWEVER, I learned a thing or two, and this weekend I was back for more.  Instead of using cheap stickers for lettering, I only used vinyl lettering (which you can find online or at the craft store).  I also got blank canvases and painted them myself with spray paint - first with metallic gold (for the lettering), and then a deep blue to match our guest room.  These turned out much better than before, and I love how welcoming they make our guest room look!  

Blank Canvas(es)
Spray Paint 
Vinyl Lettering 

Spray paint your canvas whatever color you'd like your lettering to be.  You can also follow what I tried the first time and just skip this step, using a pre-painted canvas from the thrift store or something.  Once you have a painted canvas, use your vinyl lettering to spell our whatever words or phrases you'd like.  Make sure you use a ruler for your lettering to be straight!  Also, pay attention to the spacing between your letters.  If it's too messy, it will look a little too "DIY", if you know what I'm sayin'.  Once you have your vinyl lettering on, spray paint again in a different color.  Wait to dry, and then peel off the vinyl lettering.  That's it!  You're done!

I really like how both of my canvases match, and am satisfied with how these turned out.  Also, using spray paint, the paint dries within 30 minutes!  Such a quick and easy project to brighten up a room…!  :)
