I’ve been working on cheap geometrical wall art pieces for a few days, and I have a lot of ideas of what to do with them, but I thought I’d start out by explaining how to make them for CHEAP with a capital C.
First, I went to the local thrift story and bought these canvases. I didn’t care what they had on them because I would be painting them black anyway. All I cared about was that they were all the same size. So, I found these four canvases (look at he pretty butterfly and flower 😉 They cost $2.00 each (for a total of $8.00).
The first step is to paint the canvases. Black. Bye bye butterfly.
Let them dry completely before moving to the next step.
Next, carefully map out random squares on the canvases using painter’s tape (my best friend these days!)
Next, I took a stencil brush and softly and steadily moved the brush up and down, dabbing on the paint. Be careful not to put too much paint on your brush. I dabbed it in the paint, and then dabbed the paint off on newspaper before painting on the canvases. I wanted my paint to have dimension, so that’s why I used a stencil brush. That way, you can see some of the black through the colors.
When I got done with painting on the colors, I waited for it to dry, and carefully removed the tape.
Here is the first one completed.
The GREAT thing is that I used black satin paint that I already had and craft paint that I already had too. Here are all four of them
So, my grand total for these four cheap geometrical wall art pieces is $8.00. I thought they turned out sweet, and of course thrifty! 🙂
