I found these ugly and somewhat creepy Halloween canvases at Marshall’s after Halloween.
I knew I could make something far more interesting with these so I happily paid the confused looking clerk my $3 for all 4 and took them home where they sat for at least a month. I couldn’t decide where I wanted them and how I wanted to change them. So many possibilities!!
After I read about the Rus-Oluem Revamp contest at Shanty2Chic, I got the motivation that I needed to get these done! I decided to make Christmas canvases with them and this was a super quick and easy project using Rust-Oleum paint and vinyl.
So I got out my trusty Rust-Oleum gray primer and gave them a good bath to cover all of the ugliness spewing forth.
Looking better already don’t you think?
Next, I got out my newly purchased and oh so pretty Colonial Red Satin by Rust-Oleum and went to work.
While the paint dried between coats, I got busy cutting my Christmas shapes with my vinyl. (It took longer to decide on which shapes I wanted than it did to do all of the painting!) The best part of this project is that the vinyl peels right off and the red matches my family room. Do you get where I’m going here????
Here is the final project hanging on the wall that connects the kitchen and family room.
