We moved into our house when I was 7 months pregnant and because of that and then having the baby, running a business and just life itself, it's been nearly impossible to finish decorating our place. It's always a work in progress. One room I love the most is my daughter's room. We made sure to finish it before she arrived and it's probably my favorite (and actually finished) room in the house. My daughter is 19 months old now so I decided to switch up a few decor pieces in her room. A lot of the stuffed animals that were just decor are now toys that she plays with every day so I've been changing and adding things. One thing that I really want to do is to add a different color to her room. We had painted it a really pretty gray that I still love but I wanted an accent wall or maybe even adding stripes.
The rest of the process is super easy, just paint the canvas, wait a few hours for paint to dry, paint another coat until you are happy with the coverage. Wait overnight as you want the paint to for sure be dry when you put the vinyl letters on. When paint is completely dry add the vinyl lettering as directed and voila!
For the glitter canvas, mix 1 parts ModPodge to approx 1-2 parts glitter (start with 1 to 1 and judge based on your mixture if you want to add more) paint the canvas, wait for it to dry and keep on adding coats. Because it's glitter you will not get an even coverage so I had to check corners and such for empty spaces and keep on adding more of the glitter/Mod Podge mixture. Let dry overnight and then apply the vinyl lettering as directed.
Here's how it looks on the wall!
Just a little accent for now but I do love it against the gray wall! Now I just have to plan some time to paint stripes on the empty wall in the room but I think it will look fabulous!
