So about a year ago now we remodeled our downstairs bathroom and for about a year I've been looking for some type of black and white art to put on the walls.
When we were in Leavenworth (a small Bavarian town in Washington) I bought a canvas with subway art for about $50.00! Just recently I found some subway art at Marshall's and TJ Max for $16.99! Cheaper yes! But I had an idea that I could make it even cheaper!
This is my first attempt at subway art! It's not perfect but I kind of like it that way! I plan on covering all the walls in my powder room with subway art for some bathroom reading material! Ha, ha!
So do you want to know how I made this?!?!
First of all I bought a canvas at Michael's! It was 40% off! I paid a few dollars for a blank canvas!
I have so many alphabet stickers from scrap-booking and to be truthful I really don't like using stickers! And these ones I used on this canvas were super tacky! Not my style at all!
I looked for some fun quotes, placed the stickers on the canvas and then used acrylic paint over the letters! I let it dry for about an hour and then peeled off the stickers! And PRESTO! Subway art for really $3.00!
