Book Preview: 100+ Paint Projects

August 10, 2011 § Leave a comment


I was really excited to check out a preview issue of Better Homes and Gardens’ latest DIY book: 100+ Paint Projects, available August 22, 2011. It’s such a fun book with so many projects and includes great ideas and instructions on paint projects for fabric, walls, floors, ceramics, cabinets, artwork and furniture.

I’ve been on the lookout for some artwork inspiration and found this Layered Blooms sunflower project to do:

You’ll Need:
1. Stencil (available in the back of the book)
2. Canvas
3. Stencil brush
4. Acrylic paints
5. Stretcher bars
6. Frame

1. To make this artwork, start with a sunflower stencil and raw canvas. Randomly stencil the design using a stencil brush and three shades of orange, letting the paint dry between colors (I plan on using purple to matchy bedroom).
2. Stretch the canvas on stretcher bars and hang it in the frame.

And there you have it–your very own handmade art!


This book has so many inspirational projects and I’m glad I was able to share one with you! As always, thanks for reading and please come back soon! xo
