When we were in Texas over the 4th of July, we toured my cousin’s new house. I fell in love with a cute sign she had in her daughters’ room and decided I could paint that in colors that would match Rhett’s nursery. I set out to Hobby Lobby for some paint, because I had an old canvas from my office at work. While at Hob Lob, I actually found a bigger canvas marked way down because it was ugly. Knowing that I was going to be painting the canvas navy, I knew I could paint over it and have a bigger sign that was closer to my cousin’s sign. Score!
This canvas literally ate up an entire bottle of navy paint! It just kept soaking it in. I probably did 4 coats on the canvas before it covered the ugly design. Once I got it completely covered in navy, I drew the design out in chalk based off the picture I had taken of the original. The chalk was super helpful in spacing out the words and making the font style the same as the original. I did some cute gold and white dots and called it done! I love the results!
