Pinterest Pick: Masking Tape Wall Art

It's supposed to hit 89 degrees today!  A part of me is yearning to venture out and play in the dirt.  Another part of me, the pregnant part, is glad to be inside, blogging in the air conditioning.

This weeks Pinterest Pick is the perfect excuse to get outside for awhile, though.

When we first moved into our house, one of the first things I wanted to work on was the boys room.  I had a vision in mind and once it was brought to life, I knew exactly what was missing.

Wall decor.

I wanted to avoid kiddish prints and posters but I just couldn't figure out what the room needed to give it a little zing.

Until I came across this.




ReadyMade.com is all over Pinterest but this is one of the first projects that really caught my eye.  DIY graphic art?  That seemed promising!  Fun enough for a kids room without cartoon characters or animals.

And the best part? This is one of the easiest projects I've ever done!  All you have to do is wrap masking tape (or painters tape) around a canvas very randomly and spray paint.  When the paint is dry, pull of the tape and tada! You have custom graphic wall art.

So how did mine turn out?

Like this.



Gorgeous.  I opted for a bright yellow to add some pop to the primarily blue walls.  And while I love how one came out, I decided one more would REALLY add to the room.




Ah! That's better!

Head on over to ReadyMade.com for the full step by step tutorial!  And if you decide to try this incredibly simple, yet totally awesome project, be sure to let me know.  I'd love to see yours!

Until next time, Happy Monday!
