DIY Canvas Wall Art

DIY Canvas Wall Art | Life in the Making(s)

Here’s another project that’s been done for awhile: some DIY canvas wall art. I picked up a 2-pack of 16×20 canvases at Michaels before I even moved at the end of January. It only took me a couple of weeks to get these done so I could put something up on the walls!

The top one was super simple: I just used some black acrylic paint and a 2″ brush to paint some random strokes on the canvas, being careful not to do too much!

This one I actually repainted a couple of times before I was happy with it, so you can see some different strokes underneath. I ended up painting the whole canvas silver, then painting over most of it with the black, and doing a little more silver on top. (Letting it dry between colors, of course!)

I decided the wall above my desk needed a bit more color and movement, so I made some pinwheels out of scrapbook paper, and stuck them to the wall with poster tack. So far, they’ve held up surprisingly well!

Mirror Makeover

Mirror Makeover | Life in the Making(s)

I found this mirror in storage (thrifted a few years ago), and moved it into my room. It was pretty scratched up, so I decided to paint it white to match some of my new IKEA furniture.

I lightly sanded it down, and then used 3 coats of primer, followed by a coat of glossy white paint. I used caulk around the edges of the mirror itself to give it a cleaner finish and cover up more of the dark reflection from the wood.

It has a nice, fresh look now, and works great in my room!
