Monogrammed Canvas

HUGE impact that's not incredibly pricey! Here's how: I already owned the large canvas (24"x30") from a previous DIY painting project gone bad so all I needed was the monogram. After scouring the internet for the lowest possible price, I ended up ordering the 18” white vine connected monogram from Scrappin Plus on etsy. With shipping, it rang up at $32 – pretty cheap compared to prices upwards of $75 that I’d seen on other sites. It arrived about a week later and, after rubbing some sand paper over the edges, I gave it a good coat of Annie Sloan’s duck egg blue chalk paint. This took quite a long time to get all the little curves and crevices, but was well worth it!
Honey used a little trim paint (Benjamin Moore White Dove) left over from the porch and gave my canvas two nice coats. After both the monogram and canvas were dry, he used a super glue to put the two together. We let it set overnight and then propped it up on the floor for another day to make sure it wasn’t going to fall off.

    Very impressive. I looked at these when in TX on a little jaunt w friends and they were really pricey...so much that I just said forget it. You did good (great!)

    I love this idea. I have almost all of the items I need except when I ordered my monogram, it came and I can't distinguish the actual letters as there is way too much vining on it and am sorry to say I can't distinguish your initials either; is it just my eyesight or what cuz I do love the vining but I think it takes away from the actual message which is the letters???. I also love the colors you chose..AWESOME
