For the longest time our living room has been looking very empty. The ceilings are very high and the wall space is so large. We've been looking for an art piece or something to hang above our TV but everything was either just not it or too expensive.
But look what I found! TUTORIAL. It's like it was meant for us, our living room, our house! We headed to Michaels right away with 15% off total purchase in hand and gathered all of our supplies for this project for about $50. Let me repeat that. Fifty dollars for a 32x48" stretched canvas, paintbrushes, 2 tubes of red paint, and 1 tube of gray paint. (We bought a lot of extra paint but that's all we used with some left over!) The hardest part was finding 1/4" masking/painters tape, no one carries it! We almost decided to go with the 3/4" we found but I had some Japanese washi tape that was 1/4" and it worked out perfectly. No bleeds and it came off easy. Now, I didn't want to make this some sort of creativity project because this is my first time painting in a long time, so I copied the project exactly. The lines are a bit skewed because of size difference and the colors are a little different but we made it so it would look exactly the same as the original project that was shared. We loved the original, so why should we come up with our own?
This project only took about an hour to tape the lines and paint and couple hours to dry and remove the tape. Simple and beautiful, my two favorite things together.
We love seeing it up on our wall and I find myself just staring at it sometimes because it's nice to look at. :)
If you have a huge space on your wall, I highly recommend painting something on a large canvas yourself! Keep it simple with some lines and only a few colors and it'll probably look great and professional but cheap and fun. (I can't wait to paint some more stuff!)
