Bare Walls Be Gone

Time for a quick and easy DIY art project.  I love modern art and was instantly inspired when I saw this post HERE at The New Domestic.  It looked easy and created a big impact.

I started off with a blank canvas, mine was 30x40 inches.  I drew out a few possibilities and then started taping my canvas.  I used 1/2 inch artists tape.

You can see the white tape on the white canvas a little better here.  Once you are happy with your tape, it's time to start painting.

I painted my accent yellow color first and then did the blue.

You may need more than one coat.  Let it dry....

....and then pull the tape off.

A big statement for so little time and money.  I used some sample paints leftover from choosing wall colors earlier this year.  The blue is in my kitchen and bay window and I think the yellow will end up in the hall bathroom, still deciding.  I bought the canvas at a local craft store with a coupon for $25.  I already had the tape from a previous project and used a couple of basic sponge brushes to do the actual painting.  So easy + $25 = LOVE IT!
