boys room wall art

A few months ago I bought these two fruit pictures at a garage sale for 50 cents each.


I bought them with the intention of really just using them for the canvas. So I took some cream colored paint and painted over the picture. I thought the edges were kind of cool, so I didn't bother with those.
Then I found some scrapbook paper that I liked and cut them to fit.

I put mod podge down on the front, and then slowly worked my way to the edges making sure I folded the corners in like a present.


And that's it. Two new pieces of art for my sons room. Stay tuned for the big reveal as we try to neutral up his current room so that we can sell the house.

That's a super cute idea! I've been looking for a way to add some easy artwork into my house. :)

These turned out fabulous! I love the paper you used!

I'm working on a project similar in nature with canvases I bought at the Dollar Tree, but it's turning out to be a beast! I really wish I had left extra so I could wrap the edges like you did. Lesson learned I guess.

I love these papers! It's hard to find true boy scrapbooking paper sometimes... the boy-ish looks too baby-ish... but these are awesome! I just bought some yucky $1 store canvases and they are aching for a treatment like this!

Stopping by from (last week's) Saturday is Crafty Day @ along for the ride. Have a wonderful weekend!
