Waste Not (Canvas DIY)

I don’t know if you guys remember this “ART PROJECT” I called myself doing last year. Well the canvas was sitting in my hall closet, and I decided I needed to do something with it. Heck even paint over it. I then looked down and there was fabric that I purchased for my daughters headboard last year just sitting. So I thought the two should marry and have babies. This was just what she needed.

My daughter likes to display letters that we have written her. She originally framed the letters herself in the most teenage way you could imagine (horrible). So I think this is much better, and she is able to change things out as she pleases.

I actually made 4, but at this point I have decided to go with 3. This had to have been the easiest project ever.

So what do you think?

High Fives & Hugs,
