Happy Christmas Eve! Here is #6 on our list of top blog posts in 2013 is this DIY Canvas Art. Enjoy!
Who is as fickle as I am when it comes to your wall art? Anyone? I am constantly changing my mind when it comes to my walls. So when Royal Design Stencils contacted me about trying out one of their stencils I knew I had the perfect project for my Master Bedroom! Come check out affordable DIY canvas art with Royal Design Stencils and a sweet giveaway so you can score your own amazing stencil!
I could seriously peruse Royal Design Stencils website all day. I couldn’t make up my mind because they are all so gorgeous! I finally settled on the Endless Circles Lattice Moroccan Stencil from The All Over Moroccan Stencil Collection. I also got to try their 2” Stencil Brush. Let me tell you this brush is life changing. Not kidding.
Stenciling can be challenging but this brush made it a breeze! You brush your paint on in a circular motion using the 2” Stencil Brush and this really eliminated any bleed thru on to the edges and also created really nice texture with the paint.
Once the paint was dry I decided to wax the canvases with CeCe Caldwell’s Clear Wax to bring the color back to life and add a little shine. I wondered how it would work since I have never waxed canvas before but it was a snap!

I hung them laterally on the wall above my bed.
It takes up the entire wall and I love how it filled the previously awkward space.
The coral and crisp white tie in nicely and the modern lattice makes it not seem so feminine.
This project was so affordable because I can reuse the stencil and I only had to buy 4 canvases at Hobby Lobby for around $16.00 total! Then I won’t feel guilty if I have to change it out; but I don’t think that will be happening anytime soon!
