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!
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…! :)
