Kids Play: A New Piece of Art

I am on a mission to lighten up our front room in our house. I love the wall colour (Benjamin Moore Davenport Tan), I love our couch but I wanted to inject some new colour in the space. It just felt too dark. More on what else I am going to do to change things up later but today I wanted to share with you a project I did with my boys … perhaps budding Picasso’s?

We took a giant canvas I had bought ages ago at HomeSense and made it uniquely ours!

First I painted over the bright colours.

Here they are all ready to paint!

Then I pulled out extra paint that I had lying around … and let the boys at it.

We dried it on the grass in the bright, hot sun …

And hung it up!

I love the lighter canvas and the fact that it is uniquely ours. We even signed the back! So simple and such a fun project for us to do.

What have you created with your kids lately?

  1. What a fun idea! Your kids must feel so proud to have their masterpiece hanging in your home!

  2. I love it Sarah! Definitely stealing that idea for a cottage project. Thanks for sharing. PS. You may have a few budding Pollock’s on your hands…just in talent, not temperment 🙂

  3. Love this! so if I didn’t have a home sense canvas lying around, how would you recommend I go about it?

  4. Love this, it looks fantastic and the kiddies seems to of had fun doing it!
