My quest to modernize and update our master bedroom for very little money continues. I thought it would be fun today to share my “go to” fun and easy wall art idea.
Check out last week’s master bedroom updates here.
It’s no secret I have mad love for classic black (or really dark gray) and cream stripes. One of these days I’m going to share how I’ve added them to every. single. room.
But today we’re talking master bedroom. For the past two years I’ve had rather formal styled prints on either side of my dresser.
Since I’m updating with a more graphic look, and sticking to a dark gray/black, cream and porcelain blue color scheme, I decided to switch out this art.
I purchased a couple of 16×20 canvases, painted them cream and added black stripes.
The easiest way to add stripes to a canvas or wall is to measure the distance the stripes will cover (in this case, 20 inches) and divide by the number of stripes you want. This will give you the width of each stripe. If you always choose an odd number of stripes you’ll never have to paint next to the ceiling or baseboard on a wall, or the top or bottom edge of a canvas.
I created a chalkboard printable with a Bible passage read at our wedding almost 24 years ago. It’s a special one.
The printable “art” is attached with washi tape, so I can change it out with the seasons. Or on a whim. I have those sometimes. Or I can leave the canvas plain and just enjoy the simplicity of the stripes.
I made two canvases, but haven’t figured out what my second printable will say yet. A good artist never rushes. (wink)
Striped “art” is also great for layering wreaths, like I did for our spring mantel.
Clearly I’m kind of in love with this simple and easy wall art idea.
