DIY: Chevron Canvas Art

I am on a constant quest to find new and affordable art for my bedroom walls. Additionally, the art needs to match the teal curtains and pillows that already give color to my room. For this reason, I decided to take matters into my own hands this weekend and use the leftover canvas I had from my previous DIY wall art project. Here is what I came up with: 





What You Need:

1 White canvas
1 Can of metallic spray paint
1 Can of spray paint in a different color of your choice 
Painter's tape

To start, spray paint the entire canvas with the metallic paint color. I recommend doing at least two coats of the paint and making sure to let the canvas dry completely in between each coat. To avoid making a mess and all of the fumes I laid the canvas across the top of a box and did the painting outside.



Once the metallic paint is entirely dry - I let mine dry overnight just to be safe - lay out the painter's tape in the pattern of your choice. I love the chevron pattern and chose to use that pattern for the design. I used two strips of tape for each section to get the width that I wanted. 


Next, spray paint the canvas with the other color that you chose. Cover the canvas entirely, including the tape, in order to have the design come out well. I did two coats of this color, too. 


Finally, peel the painter's tape off of the canvas once the paint is completely dry. The metallic color should shine brightly and you will have a sharp pattern made on the canvas that's now ready for hanging on the wall.

  1. This is so pretty. I love the idea of making your own artwork to match your space instead of searching forever for something that you have to make work...and then it's time to change everything out. Love it!
