So I bought a bunch of canvases a while back from Dollar Tree for obviously $1.00. I have 1 in my bedroom and the others I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with them. So here is what I came up with for now.
I forgot to take a picture of the canvases before I started (sorry) so this is an older picture of one style canvas that was on my bedroom wall. Has been changed since then. (nothing last more than 30 days in a spot, I think its from my merchandising days in retail) Windows were changed bi-weekly and in-store display weekly. So my husband is pleasantly surprised everytime he walks through the door.
Canvases with a coat of Beige Spray paint (had from painting my baseboard heaters)
Mocha Glaze (I worked a Lowe's a few years back in the Administrative dept and was known to buy out the clearance carts within minutes).
I just rubbed the glaze on with a paper towel and let dry
I pulled off some leaves from my fall garland thats already around the house and on the porch.
Here is a shot of the full Autumn/Fall fireplace area. I think it looks warm and cozy, hopefully this weekend I can get him to box in that equipment. I have plans....lol I was going to light the fireplace but the baby is sleeping about 4 feet away and didnt want to risk a wake up.
PLEASE EXCUSE THE LAST 2 PICS.....its evening and I had to use my daughters iPhone because my silly camera was acting up again.
Final Cost of this project: $ 0.00
Canvases - were purchased a while back and in my craft drawer
Spray Paint - already had from clean up project on baseboards
Glaze - Already had from working at Lowe's
Leaves - I just pulled them off of exsisting fall decoration
The best part is that I can just rip the leaves off and use the canvases for a different season or paint over them again and again!
