I got this idea from Pinterest. Easy-peasy.
Side note: Pinterest.com is my new favorite pastime. If you haven't discovered it yet, I'm sorry for you. Get with the program.
1. Gather up these here supplies. The blog I got it from suggested spray paint, but I used the little $3 samples from Lowes.
2. Get creative with some masking tape. I've never denied being a perfectionist. I redid my taping at least five times per canvas. Practice makes perfect.
3. Sorry about the poor picture quality on this one. My basement is a bit of a dungeon. I had to do three coats just to make sure it was evenly covered.
4. Ta-Da! Mantle artwork for under $20. Can't beat that deal.
