Make Beautiful Canvas Art [in less than an hour!]

DIY One Hour Canvas Art

Today I’m sharing the final DIY from my Modern Industrial Guest Bedroom. If you weren’t here when I started the challenge, I went on a crazy six week adventure to completely transform our guest bedroom in six weeks and I was SO happy with the room! This room is full of DIYS, like our Industrial Wall Sconces, my DIY Decorative Metal Orbs, and my Industrial Side Table. This DIY canvas art video tutorial marks the official end to my Modern Industrial Guest Bedroom *tear*, but I’m SO happy to share it!ย

I’m going to jump in by saying that I am NOT an artist. I may be creative, but painting of any sort is not one of my skills (yet!). This however, is artwork that I CAN do! I honestly made this painting in less than an hour while my mom was visiting. She drank tea and chatted with me while I painted (see Mom, I told you I’d edit out our conversation! lol).

I promise you can make this and you will LOVE it. Check out the quick video tutorial!

The only thing that I didn’t mention in the video was that I added the grey border to the artwork after it was done drying. I didn’t want the edges to stay white, and I had accidentally gotten some paint on the sides :) Painting the edge is the perfect way to finish off the piece!

This art makes such a huge statement! Everyone that enters the room mentions the artwork and loves it. I’m thrilled that I was able to share it here today!

      1. Hi I was just wondering how you would do this with pastel pink,greys and white? Would you NEED to use a darker pink or are you still able to achieve the same effect with? If so what colour do you use first?

        1. I think you could definitely achieve the same effect! I would probably try the pink first, so that you can leave some of it pure in the middle without blending. If you want you can buy tiny canvases and experiment with the way your colours mix before you add them to a large canvas too :)

          1. Yes, but only slightly! Just dipped it in water and then wiped it on a paper towel. I didn’t worry about getting it totally clean because I wanted the colours to blend anyway :)

  1. I don’t know why I thought I should only us the same size pics for my posts, this post looks very cool, I like the way you have a combination of vertical and horizontal. Digging that canvas painting.

  2. This is so gorgeous! And I love how easy your technique is. Thanks for linking up with Creative Spark last week; I’m featuring your DIY painting at this week’s party. Hope you’ll link up again this week – the party goes live at 6am EST tomorrow :)

  3. I loved the colors you picks and how you make it look so simple to do. I featured you on A Little Bird Told Me Link Party and I’ve got to admit, I’m going to try my hand at creating a masterpiece of my own. Thanks for the inspiration!
