Art for the Laundry Room

I'm sure you all remember the newly painted laundry room that I showed you in this post. Well I decided that it really needed some art to spruce it up a bit. I got a 2-pack of canvases for $6 at AC Moore last week and figured it was time to put one to use! I took one of the canvases and spray painted it with white paint to cover the slightly tan tint to the cheaper canvas.
 I then found a chunky hanger that we have with a cute little swirl inside of it. I carefully measured to find the exact center of my canvas eyeballed to find the middle of the canvas. Then I simply traced the outline of the hanger very carefully.
Here is what it looked like once I finished tracing it. Then I took lime green paint and filled in the outline.
The first layer of paint was really splotchy, so I used two coats for a nice solid look. I really love the way that it turned out!
Check back in a few days and I will show you where this cute little baby ended up! I love it!
