DIY Monogram Canvas Art


Happy Monday, Friends!

I hope your weekend was excellent! My husband really puts a damper on Friday by saying "don't get too excited, you're only 2 days away from Monday" :( What a sad way of looking at it! But it does explain why weekends fly the heck by. Am I the only one who wakes up on Sunday feeling like the weekend has already ended? Boo!

I'm so excited to share with you more master bedroom progress we worked on this weekend. The big reveal is only a week or two away...yay! Decorating this room has been expensive, ya'll. I'm glad its coming to an end. 

Once upon a time, on May 31st, 2014 we invited all our friends and family to witness the best day of our lives, our wedding day. I knew I wanted a unique guest book that we could save forever and look at daily, so a giant 2.5 foot monogram seemed ideal. Especially because i'm a firm believer that if it's not breathing, monogram it. (and there are some living exceptions) :)




This was such an easy project to throw together. I started with a GIANT canvas from Hobby Lobby, and spray painted it krylon brushed nickel in satin. It's the perfect mix between gold and silver, it showed up great on the canvas. 





It took 2 coats of paint, and then after letting it cure for 24 hours, I took a damp dishrag to it to remove any overspray or dust that seemed to have accumulated overnight.


Then it was easy! All I had to do was hot glue this baby on, and put her up on the wall :)







It was an easy weekend project that made a big impact in our room. I was doing my makeup this morning reading over the well wishes and it was a perfect way to start the week!

What'd you do for your wedding guest book? Do you still get the smiles when you read it over?

Thanks for coming by!

Until Next Time,
