Play Room Art

This last weekend I snuck away with my Mother-in-law for a few minutes to peruse a garage sale on the corner.  So glad I did because I found several canvases in perfect shape for only 25 cents a piece.  I litterally paid for them using only coins from the bottom of my purse.  LOVE it when that happens!

There were a couple of 20" by 16" ones that were calling for immediate action.  This morning they received two coats of black paint.  (I used a semi-gloss interior latex because that's what I had on hand and I figured it would be more durable than my Apple Barrel craft paint from Walmart.  When Light Sabor duals are a daily event in one's house, durability is an absolute must!

Then I whipped out a couple of Alphabet decals using my vinyl cutter and rubbed them on. 

They went from blank canvases to hanging on the wall in just a few hours.  Easy peasy.

I'm going to post the decals on my Etsy shop in case you have a couple of canvases calling to you but need a little rub-on magic.
