A Lovely Home Day 12: Thrifted Word Art

I saw this tutorial on A Beautiful  Mess and had to try it for myself!

I found this painting at a thrift store for $3. I liked that it was on a board instead of a canvas, plus it seemed like a good size.  Then, I picked up some vinyl letters at Joann’s.

Reid helped me decide what phrase to use. We decided on “it is well with my soul”…one of our favorite hymns.

I got out some flat white spray paint and started painting it in very thin coats. I probably did 10 thin coats all together.

Once it looked totally white like this…

My little helper and I started peeling off the letters…the fun part!

And we ended up with this!

Super fun and easy! I’m still deciding on where to hang it. I’ve been wanting to create a gallery wall, so most likely this will be a part of that.

I think I spent about $10 total on the project. Not too bad! It would be even cheaper if you already had an old painting and a leftover can of spray paint…I had to buy both of those. But, I only used about 1/4 of the can of paint, so now I have some for my next project!
