Sophie and I decided to create some art for the laundry room. I described the process to her last night at bedtime and she was sold on the idea: create a design on canvas using painter’s tape and then fill the voids with beautiful colors.
We started with blank white canvas and brand new paintbrushes:
Then came our bright color palette:
We used painter’s tape to create a design on the canvas:
And then the fun part–coloring between the lines!
Next came the waiting (we’re not good at this part):
And then the revealing–Sophie’s finished masterpiece:
A few lessons learned:
- Ideally we would have been patient enough to use two coats of paint.
- Also along the lines of patience, I would wait until the paint is mostly dry before removing tape–probably two hours post painting should be sufficient.
Though not perfect, we had a blast and already have plans for our next project. And this will certainly cheer up the laundry room!
