I was needing some art for my downstairs bathroom, and I wanted something fun but simple at the same time.
I bought a thin piece of wood and stained it with basic wood stain. The I used letter stencils to trace out the word SMILE.
After the tracing was done, I painted the letters in with white acrylic paint.
I screwed it to the wall with metal screws after it was done to give it an industrial look.
I love it and it gives you something to think about while sitting on the john.
So you may be thinking (You painted your beautiful duck gray) You are right I did…
I loved my old duck, but that is the beauty of spray paint…when something does not fit your “LOOK” anymore, you can change it!
A sprayed him with a few coats of gray spray paint and viola, he’s a NEW duck with a NEW look!
Here he is in the middle of his makeover…
A few years ago, we ( cheaply ) purchased my parents tent trailer from them. Not only was it a good deal, but a lot of memories came along with it. Like anything that is getting older, we started to discover a little work that needed to be done. The one thing that really bothered me was the black bumper on the rear. It is starting to show lots of RUST!
First things first…cover that baby up!
Then I sprayed away with black spray paint of course…I used regular indoor/outdoor black spray paint in gloss. I could have done matte, but I wanted a little shine to it! It’s an easy project and looks like a million buckeroos when it’s done!
I painted some cheap canvases white ( to give it a base )
I cut balloon shapes out of fabric…
I glued the fabric balloons down with craft spray glue and then painted over them with Mod Podge.
When everything was dry, I took a sharpie and drew in strings.
DO NOT DRAW THE STRINGS BEFORE THE MOD PODGE, THE INK WILL BLEED.
So I have been a little MIA in the blogging community due to the fact that our family had some kind of sickness and also we spent all of our moo’lah on professionally landscaping our backyard ( it was worth every penny however!)
So with that little schpeel out of the way, I needed some art for a blank spot in our living room, and I wanted it to be FREE.
When we moved, it sat with no spot to go, so I changed it up a bit…
Lets just say I cut it up and made a new canvas!
My husband and I used to bike a lot ( before we had kids of course!) and so I have a fondness of bikes…
