Etsy Shop + DIY Canvas Artwork

Happy Monday Friends! I'm here today to show you our newest artwork in the playroom.

But first, I need to tell you about an amazing Etsy shop called 2BsCraftsandDesigns

They have the cutest signs!! I knew I loved the saying on the sign I purchased because I originally saw on my girl Marie's blog

And their customer service is awesome! Quick responses (which I love) and very patient!

Since what you get is a file when ordering from 2BsCraftsandDesigns I knew I had to come up with a way to get this sign printed for artwork on our wall.  Originally I thought maybe I would frame it, but then decided on mounting it to canvas.

For this little project, you need:

  • print in whatever you size you would like (just make sure the size you pick also comes in a canvas) - I did my print size 22" x 28"
  • canvas (I bought a 22" x 28" from Joanns, and of course with a coupon)
  • spray adhesive
  • black paint (optional)

I first searched and searched where I could order a poster print in size 22" x 28" without breaking the bank. I ended up ordering from Overnight Prints and my total with shipping was just over $11.

Next, I bought my canvas from Joanns which was on sale for $10!

I already had black paint and spray adhesive so this project was pretty inexpensive. 



First, I painted all 4 sides of my canvas.  I did this so when it is hung on the wall it looks finished. I toyed with leaving it white and I'm SO happy I didn't.




After the paint dried, I sprayed the entire canvas with spray adhesive and then I had the hubby help lay the poster print ever so carefully on the canvas.  We just used our hands to smooth it out then let it dry overnight.


Here is the final result! I love it so much!





It looks so nice in the playroom




So go check out 2BsCraftsandDesigns now and get your shop on! Alot of the signs are on sale ( the one I got is only $3.50!!)
