Eat, drink & be merry! That’s my philosophy as to what a kitchen should feel like. I grew up in a household where the kitchen is the heart of the home. It was (and still is) the numero uno hang out spot. It’s where we share our daily recap, we try my crazy food concoctions, and sip the occasional glass of Cabernet 😉
In my quest to cheer up and modernize the kitchen in our new place, I have been on the hunt for some inexpensive & do-able inspiration. Dana from House*Tweaking has really struck a chord with me lately (see previous post).
I am in love with this canvas art she created for her house:
I just felt inspired to make my own version for my kitchen when I saw this.
I didn’t have any loose canvas, but I did have a white stretched canvas in my attic.
This is my interpretation.
I sketched the words in pencil first.
Since I don’t own a projector (like Dana used for her awesomness) I had to attempt this free hand. I did have a straight edge to help keep the lines crisp, and a measuring tape to help with the spacing.
A little bit of black acrylic paint goes a long way. I like acrylic because it dries really fast.
This photo was taken when the paint was still a bit wet, so I couldn’t erase the pencil marks. I’ll do that today.
I think I’m going to add a bunch of black, white, & yellow pictures around the canvas to make the wall a bit more interesting (and add that pop of yellow that I loooove :))
