Spring Canvas

We’re in the midst of several spring projects around here. Some are bigger and some are smaller – we like to mix things up and give you some tough projects (like our Restoration Hardware knockoff shelves) and some easy do-it-in-an-afternoon type projects (like our headboard)! This little DIY spring canvas is one of those latter projects – easy – and adds just a touch of spring to the living room, although it may migrate to another space after we finish all of our spring projects.

To make your own Spring Canvas, all you need are a few paint colours, some letter stamps, paint brushes, a canvas (I bought mine at the Dollar Store) and some walnut Distressing Ink. The first step is to layer your paint with a large brush. This does not have to be neat at all. I started with an aqua blue, blow dried and then layered with linen white.


And then you just rub on some Distressing Ink, and stamp with whatever phrase you like! I chose to use a portion of the spring poem on our dining room wall: il neige des fleurs – it’s snowing flowers.

It’s a super easy, very cheap (I had everything on hand) little touch of spring!

    I just love the canvas! I was noticing the awesome font your stamps are in the when I saw the labels for the baskets had them. Where did you find them?
    Thanks for hosting you two!!
