I am loving Pinterest these days. I am not sure if its because I have 4 days off each week (to do nothing), or that I am moving... but I am loving all things home. Or in my case, apartment. In the last post, I painted my chevron canvases, and I think they turned out pretty cute. Now, I am so excited that I found the 5X5 frames at Michael's to recreate this beauty.
I didn't buy 16 frames, just 9 for now. Did you know you can order your Instagram photos with the app PoastalPix? The app is free and the prints are only .89 cents! I am so looking forward to my prints coming in and my wall going up!

I saw this on facebook, so I had to do this for my new apartment. Here is the inspiration.
I am sure it would have been much easier if I marked the board better, but I was a little too impatient for that. So I taped it off.
Painted two coats. Let it dry.
And peeled off the blue tape.
Of course, there are some small places where it leaked through, but overall I am rather happy with the outcome! The canvases are only $7.99 for a pack of two at hobby lobby (+ a 40% off coupon), so the entire project was well under $10.00! I think I might do it again, but in a more tan/peach color. What do you all think?
