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?
