With the season of love coming up and the dreary January days coming to an end, this art upcycle combines a cure for them both. The pops of yellow in the flowers and the blue inspire the bright days to come.
When I found this art at Goodwill for $4, it looked like this.
Always look at the frames because most have good sturdy frames. You can always change what is on the inside. I loved the daisies in this one and imagined someone picking the petals off one at a time saying, “He loves me. He loves me not.”
You can use stickers or a stencil for the letters. I used stickers and laid out my words. Then, painted with chalk paint the entire canvas teal blue.
Peel off the stickers and you are done! I painted the entire frame white as well using chalk paint. I used the brand Folk Art. You can get it at Michael’s. It coats really well so it takes less coats of paint.
I love that you see some of the daisies and some of the green from the painting. With the bright blue, it really pops.
This is so easy to do. Find a painting you like and something that inspires you and make it your own. I love art and this is a great way to preserve someone’s hard work while upcycling it to make it fit your home.
The more I looked at it, the more I thought of how this thrift store art could inspire my mantel for this Valentine’s Day.
