By now, you must know that I’m on Pinterest and I get a lot of my ideas from everything on there. However, I do try to put my own take on them. Like the anniversary date canvas art that I found. Now, I like the white background but I didn’t want that for our Master bedroom (which just got re-arranged).
So, off to Michael’s we went for the items I needed. I picked up a 22×28 canvas, the numbers I needed for our 10.06.11 wedding date, paint and glue. I couldn’t wait to start on the project, but I knew I had too. I started the project when Eli went down for his morning nap. I was able to paint the canvas all black and get the tops of the letters painted with the silver metallic paint. I was hoping to finish it in a day, but that didn’t happen because Eli didn’t want to take his afternoon nap. We had a grump the rest of the day.
I was able to finish painting the sides of the numbers and a second coat on the top of them. I’m thankful because the paint dried so quickly I was able to get them glued to the canvas before Eli woke up from his nap. I didn’t read the directions as thoroughly as I should have because they clearly said that as the glue dries it expands. Whoops. I had some touch ups to do but that was my own mistake and it still came out perfectly. I didn’t take a picture of the gooey glue oozing out from the letters so you’ll just have to imagine it.
Here’s the completed art hanging up. Now, my husband will never forget our wedding anniversary. HAHA
